Yesterday’s readings in my two monthly liturgical guides (Give Us This Day and The Magnificat) both had readings for Independence Day Eucharist celebrations. But in Haiti, the normal readings for the day were used. There was very long reading from Genesis and passage from Mathew’s Gospel (9:1-8), which told the story of Jesus healing the paraplegic. The story reveals how Jesus was always conscious of the needs of others.
