Commentary on the Gospel of
Jesus was amazed with the faith not only of the paralytic but of the men who brought him to him, that they even removed the roof so they could lower him down before him. It is interesting to note that our Christian faith is not a matter only of personal belief and practices. Our faith creates a community of believers; when Jesus proclaimed that God is our Father, he showed us that we are all sisters and brothers—one big family of God. This is why we have our community celebration, the Mass. We go to heaven not alone, but as one family.
