We have, through God's great mercy, access through faith in Christ, to grace. The gospel of Luke 4:38-44 tells us how that grace is put to work, by God, in our hearts, to heal us. In this, Simon's mother-in-law is a picture of the church. St. Ambrose makes it clear that the fever of Simon's mother-in-law is an expression of the weakness and the vulnerability that we know so well.
