Saturday, Easter Wk 3: "Peter was passing through"

“Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed.”
He got up at once.
And all the inhabitants of Lydda and Sharon saw him,
and they turned to the Lord.
-- Acts 9:31-42

The risen Lord renews this mission ("In my name . . . they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.") and confirms it through the signs that the Church performs by invoking his name. These signs demonstrate in a special way that Jesus is truly "God who saves."
-- CCC 1507

Art: Tommaso Masolino (da Panicale), Saint Peter Heals a Cripple, 1424-25.
