   Pools of Bethesda / Bethsaida

A man lay sick by the Sheep’s Pool. Seeing You, O Lord, he cried to You: “There is no man to lower me into the pool when the water is stirred. Another always goes before me and receives healing, while I lie here in misery.” Immediately the Savior was moved to pity, and said to him: “It was for you that I became Man; because of you I was clothed in mortal flesh. Yet you say: ‘I have no one!’ I tell you, take up Your bed and walk!” All things obey and submit to Your power, O Lord! Remember us all, and have mercy, O holy Lover of mankind!  (From Vespers)
