What is Your Leprosy? (OGW, 023)

Are you one of the Ten Lepers in today’s Gospel (Luke Chapter 17) who was healed?

Are you like the one who turned back to say thank you, or did you go on your merry way as one of the nine and not even recognize who healed you?

Maybe you don’t have leprosy, but I’d be willing to bet there are other conditions from which you need to be healed.

What is your leprosy?


Mental or physical suffering?

Relationship problems?

Encounter Jesus as he enters the village in today’s Gospel, and notice the power he has to heal us—even from a distance!

Stand with the Samaritan leper who turned to Jesus to thank him, and let your own encounter with Christ allow you to hear the words:

“Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”
