Dear Friend in the Lord,
Gratitude: If we reflect on our daily living with greater gratitude, we will realise that our existence and all the good that is happening to us is because of God’s abundant blessings. Our family, friends, domestic helpers, bus drivers, clean air and water are all “blessings” in our daily living. Do we value them?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
As Jesus entered one of the villages, ten men suffering from a virulent skin-disease came to meet him. They stood some way off and called to him, ‘Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.’ When he saw them he said, ‘Go and show yourselves to the priests.’
Now as they were going away they were cleansed. Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and threw himself prostrate at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan.
This led Jesus to say, ‘Were not all ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.’
