And he was pleading with Him for her

     Simon asked Jesus for health for his mother-in-law.
     Prayer to God for one’s closest of kin, for the members of one’s family, concern for their physical and spiritual health – this builds a family home.  Concern for a close relative – for it is a child, for it is a mother, for it is a sister for it is a brother – builds new spiritual bond.
     This is a family in a broad meaning of this word: a spiritual family.  Family is a group of friends.  Concern for their physical and spiritual well-being shows, that there is love within among them.
