I will go in to the altar of God, to the God who gives joy to my youth.
Ps. 42:4This is the opening prayer in the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. As we go to receive Him in His Real Presence, we are reminded that only He can give us true joy in the youth of our existence, our earthly life.
A multitude with diseases, and those who were troubled by unclean spirits, came unto him, because a power emanated from him which healed them all.
Luke 6:17, 18, 19We come to Him because our lives are not whole. His healing power of both body and soul, evident throughout the Gospels, bears witness to the mercy and love of God.
