“Inside the city, near the Sheep Gate, was Bethesda Pool, with five covered platforms or porches surrounding it. Crowds of sick folks—lame, blind, or with paralyzed limbs—lay on the platforms (waiting for a certain movement of the water, for an angel of the Lord came from time to time and disturbed the water, and the first person to step down into it afterwards was healed).” (John 5:2-4)
We are always waiting for something new. The possibility of reinventing oneself, the fresh start, is important to artists and religious people. But does this hope of renewal help us live, aren’t we insensitive to what happens around, what moves us now while waiting for something “unreal”? How is the renewal experienced?
Healing and liveliness are linked with openness to present tastes and feelings. What role does the encountered Other play?
