By: Fr. Francis MacNutt
There are those who believe that people dragged down by sadness, sickness and guilt are bearing a cross specially chosen by God for them. Some believe that destructive suffering is redemptive. Father Francis MacNutt, one of the first Catholics involved in the Charismatic Renewal, believes that sickness (physical, emotional or spiritual) offers, instead a glorious chance for man to use one of Christ's most precious gifts-the power to heal through prayer. He describes how the power to heal, given by Christ to His Apostles, is available to mankind today and can and should be an ordinary common activity of Christian life.
