In times of need, find refuge in the healing ministry of Jesus.

We are all in need of healing, whether of body, mind, or spirit. And into our need steps Jesus, the healer from Nazareth. Join Amy Ekeh on an exploration of some of the most profound and personal moments in the life of Jesus, whose compassion ignited a healing ministry rich in encounter, presence, and connection. These forty reflections take us deep into the heart of powerful Gospel stories, helping us hear and experience them anew so we too may stretch out our hands—to receive and to extend the remarkable healing ministry of Jesus.

Amy Ekeh is the director of Little Rock Scripture Study and special content editor at Liturgical Press. She contributes to a variety of Catholic publications, including The Bible Today and Give Us This Day, and is the author of several books, including Come to Me, All of You: Stations of the Cross in the Voice of Christ (Liturgical Press).

Reviews

"In this beautifully written and marvelously conceived book, Amy Ekeh provides us with a series of rich reflections on the healing ministry of Jesus. Grounding her reflections on a close reading of the text, she shows us how the healing miracles of Jesus speak to us and offer healing for our lives today. Clearly written and accessible to a wide audience, this volume provides a rich resource for those seeking to pray with the scriptures. Take this book on retreat with you or read it daily for spiritual nourishment."
Frank J. Matera, Professor Emeritus, The Catholic University of America

"When reading Amy Ekeh, you're befriending a listening heart. This is what I love most: her attention to exquisite details I've long missed that open up new vistas of meaning in familiar stories. Accompanying Amy's vision, I'm touched. Enchanted. Delighted. Comforted. Challenged. These reflections will serve homilists, caregivers, and anyone who's ever longed, deeply and personally, for the healing touch of Jesus."
Alice Camille, author of For Everything There Is a Season and A Little Book of Light
