BEFORE THE CROSS | Jesus the healer

Jim Crowley, left, the 2014 Annual Catholic Appeal chair, recently received the St. Louis King Award from Archbishop Robert J. Carlson. The award is the highest honor in the archdiocese. Crowley laughed as Archbishop Carlson spoke about his contributions to the 2014 appeal.

The Gospels give abundant witness to Jesus' desire and ability to heal those in need. In the Gospels of Mark and Luke, Jesus' public ministry begins with acts of healing. Whether of an unclean spirit, of an ailing body, or both at once, healing isn't just one among many aspects of Jesus' mission -- it's the fundamental pattern behind his every word and deed.
