Crippled Beggars - August 2, 2023

Updated: Jul 17

In this episode, originally aired during Lent, Fred and Kara continue a series on lectio divina. They offer some Scripture reflections by taking a look at the account of the Lame Beggar at the Beautiful Gate. Here we see Peter and John look at him intently, though they could not offer him the money he was asking for, it did not prevent their fixed and loving attention on him. What they offer the man was something even greater than he asked for. Prayer. Jesus Christ. Healing! The man asked with expectancy; that his needs would be met. The Lord provided even greater things. Peter and John offered prayer and expected that that prayer would bear fruit. What are the many things we can learn from this passage? In what ways can we relate to this beggar? In what ways are we called to follow the example of Peter and John? What does all of this have to do with hope? Listen Wednesday, August 2 at 4 p.m. on Siouxland Catholic Radio 88.1 FM.

This episode previously aired May 3, 2023.
