Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Leper – Cured in Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cured the leper who begged Him with humility. Ponder on, “Leprosy was the most painful disease that also cuts a leper’s relationships with his community. Today’s “leprosy” are everything that cut our relationship with God and destroys, the meaning and purpose of our lives. We need to beg God with humility to renew our relationship with Him.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
After Jesus had come down from the mountain large crowds followed him. A man with a virulent skin-disease came up and bowed low in front of him, saying, ‘Lord, if you are willing, you can cleanse me.’
Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him saying, ‘I am willing. Be cleansed.’ And his skin-disease was cleansed at once. Then Jesus said to him, ‘Mind you tell no one, but go and show yourself to the priest and make the offering prescribed by Moses, as evidence to them.’
