1:29- 34 Afternoon and evening

And immediately having come out of the synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew with Jacob (James)  and John. 

The mother in law of Simon was lying down with fever. And immediately they spoke to him about her. 

And having come to him, he raised her, grasping her by the hand. And the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

When evening came, when the sun had set, they brought to him all those who were sick, and the demon possessed. And the whole town had gathered at the door. And he healed many who were sick with all kinds of disease and he cast out many demons and he did not let the demons speak, because they knew him.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, union;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy,
For your mercy and for your truth’s sake. Amen
