BXVI - To Follow Peter

Speaking to the faithful before the Angelus, Pope Benedict XVI noted that physical healing is the sign of a return to spiritual health. He was explaining the Gospel account of the healing of the paralytic. Sin is in fact a paralysis of the spirit, from which the power of Gods love liberates us. The Holy Father also recalled the feast of the Chair of St. Peter, which falls on this Sunday, as well as the Season of Lent into which we shall enter this week.
