May 30 7.15 They returned to the other disciples and saw a large crowd around and scribes arguing with them. When the crowd saw Jesus, they were amazed and ran to greet him.

He asked, “What are you debating?” Someone answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, possessed by a dumb spirit, which seizes and convulses him, then he foams, grinds his teeth and he becomes rigid. It scarcely leaves him, always bruising him. I asked your disciples to expel it, but they couldnt. Lord have mercy on him, for hes lunatic and injurious.”

Jesus answered, “O unbelieving generation! How long shall I be with you and endure you? Bring him to me!” They did, and on seeing Jesus, the spirit immediately convulsed, felled and rolled the boy about foaming. Jesus asked the father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood,” he answered, “Often it throws him into fire or water to kill him. If you can1 do anything, have pity and help us!”
