“DO YOU EVER GET TIRED?” (Mk 1:29-39): 16 January 2008 (Wednesday)
There is a scene in the rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” (1973), where a crowd of sick people suddenly appear out of nowhere singing a litany of their woes and illnesses. They crowd around Jesus as they beg him to heal them, chanting repeatedly in an almost maddening fashion:
“Will you touch, will you mend me, Christ?
Won’t you touch, will you heal me, Christ?
Will you kiss, you can heal me, Christ
Won’t you kiss, won’t you pay me, Christ?”
