Jesus is not a 'magician,' says Pope

Vatican City, Feb 24, 2014 / 10:08 am (CNA).- Pope Francis’ Monday morning homily reflected on Jesus’ miracles of healing, which always include a lasting encounter with the person who is healed.

“These acts of Jesus make us think. When He heals, when He goes among the crowds and heals a person, He never leaves that person alone. He is not a magician, a wizard, a healer, who goes and cures and continues on his way,” explained the Pope on Feb. 24 to the congregation of the chapel of the Santa Marta residence.

Instead, Jesus helps everyone “to return to his proper place – He leaves no one on the side of the road.”
