“This kind can only come out through prayer.”

SICK PRAY ONLY stdas0568

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 9:14-29.

As Jesus came down from the mountain with Peter, James, John and approached the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and scribes arguing with them.
Immediately on seeing him, the whole crowd was utterly amazed. They ran up to him and greeted him.
He asked them, “What are you arguing about with them?”
Someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I have brought to you my son possessed by a mute spirit.
Wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive it out, but they were unable to do so.”
He said to them in reply, “O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him to me.”
They brought the boy to him. And when he saw him, the spirit immediately threw the boy into convulsions. As he fell to the ground, he began to roll around and foam at the mouth.
Then he questioned his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” He replied, “Since childhood.
It has often thrown him into fire and into water to kill him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”
Jesus said to him, ” ‘If you can!’ Everything is possible to one who has faith.”
Then the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe, help my unbelief!”
Jesus, on seeing a crowd rapidly gathering, rebuked the unclean spirit and said to it, “Mute and deaf spirit, I command you: come out of him and never enter him again!”
Shouting and throwing the boy into convulsions, it came out. He became like a corpse, which caused many to say, “He is dead!”
But Jesus took him by the hand, raised him, and he stood up.
When he entered the house, his disciples asked him in private, “Why could we not drive it out?”
He said to them, “This kind can only come out through prayer.”

BLESSED VLADIMIR GHIKA
(† 1954)

        Vladimir Ghika was a convert to Catholicism who was martyred by his country’s Communist government in 1954. Born into an illustrious family of princely nobility, the young Vladimir studied political science in Paris and philosophy in Rome, and the intistitution that would become the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas – the Angelicum. He converted to Catholicism in 1902 and dedicated himself to doing works of charity, while discerning a vocation to the priesthood. He served as a diplomat for several years, including those of the I World War. In 1923, he was ordained to the priesthood.

Returned to Romania when the II World War broke out, he refused to leave despite the danger of Allied bombing. When the Communists seized power in Romania, he again refused to leave. He was arrested in 1952 and charged with high treason because he refused to foreswear loyalty to Rome and recognize the schismatic Church the Communist government was working to establish. After years of maltreatment, he died in prison on May 16th, 1954.

He was beatified on August 31st, 2013 by pope Francis.
