Jesus went from Samaria to Galilee (for Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in the prophetâ€™s own country). When he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, since they had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the festival; for they too had gone to the festival.
Â Then he came again to Cana in Galilee where he had changed the water into wine. Now there was a royal official whose son lay ill in Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and begged him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. Then Jesus said to him, â€œUnless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.â€ The official said to him, â€œSir, come down before my little boy dies.â€ Jesus said to him, â€œGo; your son will live.â€ The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and started on his way. As he was going down, his slaves met him and told him that his child was alive. So he asked them the hour when he began to recover, and they said to him, â€œYesterday at one in the afternoon the fever left him.â€ The father realized that this was the hour when Jesus had said to him, â€œYour son will live.â€ So he himself believed, along with his whole household. Now this was the second sign that Jesus did after coming from Judea to Galilee.

Sr Judith Ann always seems to be in touch with God and those who need God. We are all in great anxiety with the Corona Virus, it was wonderful that she connected the healing of the child with to=hose suffering today, It is sad that people are not only suffering the virus but isolation as well. She reminds us that Jesus is there with healing, thankyou!
