A SACRED DUTY

Matthew records in the ninth chapter of his Gospel five wonderful healings wrought by Christ Jesus: the healing of a man sick of the palsy; the raising from the dead of Jairus' daughter; the healing of a woman who had an issue of blood; the healing of two blind men; and the healing of a dumb man possessed with a devil.

After stating that Jesus went about all the cities and villages, healing the sicknesses and diseases of the people, the chapter concludes with these moving words: "When he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted.... Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."
