In need of a physician?

Are you in need of a physician? How about a Divine Physician? The Gospel Reading for the Mass for the Saturday after Ash Wednesday:

Luke 5:27-32: “After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the customs post. He said to him, ‘Follow me.’ And leaving everything behind, he got up and followed him. Then Levi gave a great banquet for him in his house, and a large crowd of tax collectors and others were at table with them. The Pharisees and their scribes complained to his disciples, saying, ‘Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?’ Jesus said to them in reply, ‘Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do. I have not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners.’

(Via USCCB.)

If you are reading this blog, chances are that you are not healthy. You are or were suffering from an addiction, be it alcohol or drugs or something else. As this is the season of Lent, a time of repentance and returning to a closer relationship with God, now is your chance to seek out the healing nature of the Sacraments. Especially Confession! See about talking to a priest about it. It’ll do you an eternity of good.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
