Responsorial Psalm: The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations. Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia, alleluia! Your words are spirit Lord, and they are life; you have the message of eternal life. Alleluia! WORD FOR TODAY When the lepers encountered Jesus it transformed their lives, though only one came back to say thank you. Do we recognise the transforming presence of God in our daily lives and , if we do, what do we have to thank God for? Let us pray for the Sick Parish Priest: Fr.

Sometimes we really mean it and sometimes it just slips out as an easy way of coping with the miscellaneous social comings and goings of our everyday life. It can also be a way of not getting involved. Every language has its own way of saying thank you. In English the word “thank” is linked to “think”. It originally meant to think thoughts of gratitude. Spanish and Italian a ckn o w le d g e a g ra ce re ce ive d (gracias/grazie); French emphasises something for which to be thankful (merci) whereas the Portuguese recognise that thanksgiving is an obligation (obrigado). Unsurprisingly, we sometimes speak about being “obliged” to someone or being thankful for “small mercies”. FOR SMALL MERCIES? gious outcast who came back to say thank you. If you read St Luke’s text you’ll find that he came back shouting thank you at the top of his voice, with the same intensity that presumably he had asked Jesus to take pity on him. Could this be Luke’s way of pointing you said “grace” before you ate a meal. We’re taught to say thank you to others but we seem to forget about God. It’s a bit like the little boy who was given an orange by his aunt. His mother asked him, “And what did you say?” “Peel it” said the child. F or the Christian, thanks is not simply a word; it’s a way of living, an attitude of gratitude. Thanksgiving comes from our close relationship with God; it’s the natural reaction to seeing what God is doing for us day after day. It’s not so much a out the complementary na- polite response as a state ture of petition and praise in of mind. prayer, of supplication and oday as we gather thanksgiving? This is someround the table of the thing that touches us all. We’re quite happy to ask Lord we thank him for all God for all sorts of things, that he does and, just as big and small.
