When only God can help

Today, in the Gospel, we hear about an important man who had a very sad problem. His little girl was very sick. Even
though she was only 12 years old, she was even close to dying! The man was a ruler in the synagogue, which meant that he had a lot of power there. But that power didnt help him with his awful problem. He found Jesus, and he asked him to help his little girl. Everyone was very sad that the girl was Jesus said, Arise! sick, and Jesus felt sorry for them. He went to visit the girl, but on the way, his disciples said that she had already died. But Jesus knew that He had power from God. He knew it wasnt too late, and so He visited her anyway. He told the girl to get up, and she did! Jesus had saved her. Sometimes we might have problems too that we dont know how to solve. Lets always remember to turn to God first, just like the important man did in the story today. Gods power is greater than anybodys power. He can help us solve all our problems!

St. Nestor and St. Demetrios
Yesterday was the nameday of a great saint, and today is the nameday of his good friend. Long ago, in
the city of Thessaloniki, Greece, Christians were not allowed to be Christians.
Well, they could be Christians, but they had to do it in secret or they could be hurt or killed.
St. Demetrios was a Christian soldier. He was sent to prison because he wouldnt worship Can you see St. Nestor fighting idols. He said he would only worship our Lyaeus? His friend St. Demetrios, one, true God the same God that you and is praying for him from the winI worship! The general, who was in charge dow. of that whole land, held a cruel game sometimes he would send Christians into a stadium to fight a huge, strong man named Lyaeus.
Another Christian, named Nestor, decided to fight him, even though he wasnt even close to Lyaeuss size! Nestor wanted to show that God was on his side. He visited his friend, St. Demetrios, in prison, and asked if he should. St. Demetrios gave him his blessing, and told his friend, Nestor, to always love God. What wonderful friends St. Demetrios and St. Nestor are! They knew that the best thing they could do was to help each other love God. Can you help your friends do that, too?
