11 January, 2018: Accepting Our Weakness


Thursday of the First Week in Ordinary Time
Reading: 1Sam. 4. 1-11; Mark 1:40-45
In the Gospel today we see that Jesus is more than ready to heal the leper. The leper in the Gospel recognizes his sickness, feels the need to ask for Jesus’ healing touch: “Lord if you want to, you can make me clean.” Jesus moved with compassion touches him saying, “I do want; be clean.” The Lord invites each of us today to humbly acknowledge that we are sick and feel our own need and ask for his healing touch. Like the leper may we turn to Jesus in faith and let our lives proclaim his gifts of mercy, forgiveness and spiritual rebirth.
