Why do Christians with the knowledge of Christ still have mortal diseases?
Why donâ€™t they naturally seek healing from those with the gifts of healing?
There seem to be Christian Saints of the past, especially Catholics, who are prayed to for healing and are looked on as “Saints”. Actually they were just as human as we are. So where are these “Saints” today?
And how can we know them?
We hear of cures and healings by the Holy Spirit in the scriptures but they all sound like they’re in the past.
Yet sometimes we hear of similar things today, in some places, done by the Saints.
So wait a second! Are these Saints the saints we pray to, the same ones we hear about today?
Where are they today?
Why donâ€™t we meet them? Todayâ€™s saints? They sound nice donâ€™t they?
Are we dying, crying? So why donâ€™t we seek them for comfort and solace?
Who are they today?
Arenâ€™t these saints actually the true ministries, churches and the like?
We like to say we love them, to say we listen to them and that they have wisdom and love, but in truth they could look at us, and our situations of today, in our little safety-zones, and say the elect, wherever they may be, havenâ€™t reached me.
The old Saints may be just us, and we haven’t reached ourselves.
I believe St. Therese of Lisieux once wrote: â€œSuffering is the very best gift He (God) has to give us. He gives it only to his closest friends.â€ And all I get from this is that I wish I could witness alive who lives, sees and communicates these virtues in the truth of suffering.
