Sunday of the Paralytic
All too often, when we examine the causes of our sufferings, we try to find causes outside of ourselves. In short, we try to place blame on someone or something other than ourselves. This is because we do not want to look at ourselves, because we do not want to see our own selfish, self-centered behaviors that put us into conflict with others or caused us to abuse our own bodies. If we look honestly at our lives, we will find that some aspect of this type of behavior is the cause of all of our suffering, no matter how much fault we can find with someone or something other than ourselves as the cause of our suffering.
Selfish, self-centered behaviors are sinful behaviors. The question is, how long are we going to let sin bring us suffering? If we let sin run its course in our lives, it will bring us to death, both a spiritual and physical death. Saint Paul reminds us of this in his epistle to James: “and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death,” (James 1:15) or again in the epistle to the Romans, “For the wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23)
