Readings: 2Kgs 5:14-17. 2Tim 2:8-13. Lk 17:11-19
On a daily basis, we’re soiled by so many things. This soiling might be in any area of our life (physical, social, spiritual, intellectual). We need to go for cleansing on a regular basis. This applies to nations too. When this soiling is so bad that it’s leprous and so, infectious, the infected person ought to be kept from the community for the community’s safety.
For the person to be restored to the community, cleansing will have to first take place. To seek this cleansing requires that the person believes in the cleansing power of the cleansing agent. It’s this faith that produces an attitude of gratitude. It’s gratitude that confirms whatever cleansing and healing action is taking place within us.
May Jesus Christ cleanse us of all types of leprosy.
And may Almighty God bless you, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
