A Poem for the 5th Sunday of Ordinary Time by Sr. Kathleen Yeadon, OSB


From synagogue to house
your message of healing
raises up those bowed down with illness.

Many gather at your door
Your healing presence
welcomes and restores.

The early morning finds you in prayer
keeping the connection to God ever strong.

Your faithfulness to prayer
keeps the focus on God’s will
not the will of the crowds or friends.

Come Lord into my place of worship.
Let your Word take root
and drive out any demons.

Greetings. Can you tell me where I might find a higher resolution image of the one of Jesus reaching out his hand to heal? Thank you. It's the one with the bluish sort of impressionistic background, a healing had and a face.
