Jesus-and-Nicodemus

“The father realized that this was the hour when Jesus had said to him; ‘Your son will live.’  So he himself believed,  along with his whole household.” (John 4 : 53)

Here we have a desperate father whose son is on his death bed.  He believes in Jesus’ divine power to heal.  The hope expressed in Jesus’ words, is the desire of all who are coming from sin to forgiveness,  death to new life,  in Baptism and Reconciliation.
