I think about the days you preached in Israel
and admire you.
You walked, healed and taught.
You had to be strong and healthy to do all these things.
You walked from Nazareth to Bethsaida in the north and Bethlehem in the south.*
You brought nothing for the journey except a staff,
no bread, no bag, no money in your belt.
Upon arriving at some place, you preached and healed the sick.
Healing perhaps took much energy from you.
You also prayed often throughout the nights for your disciples and followers.
To do these things, beside the healthy mind, you had the healthy body.
And you have been continuing your work until now.
Yes, you are strong and patient,
for you are gentle and humble in heart.
Love you, Jesus.
