Mark 1:29-35 (Gospel)

Now as soon as they had come out of the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once.
So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.
At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed.
And the whole city was gathered together at the door.
Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
