The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him. – Lk 6:7

you cured the blind
the deaf and the mute
the lame and the palsied
the leper and the possessed
the bleeding and the dead
even those not under the Law

yet you could not cure
those whose hearts were filled
with the riches of this world
with their success in this life
with the fullness of themselves
and their righteousness in the Law

only the poor in spirit
have room in their hearts
for Emmanuel, God with us
