The Healing of the Paralytic

Gospel of St. Mark 2:1-12

As the Church continues her journey into the heart of the Great Fast, she calls her children to reflect upon the healing ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ. This Sunday, the Church recalls the healing of the paralytic. There is no mention of how long this poor man was in his condition. But we can assume by the fact that he was bedridden and not able to at least drag himself by some means, that his paralysis was severe, most likely from the neck down.
