6th Sunday in Ordinary Time – B Reflection
In Jesus’ time lepers were considered “unclean.”
A leper comes to Jesus with a request to be
healed and Jesus takes pity on him, and heals
him. Despite instructions to the contrary, the
healed man goes out and spreads the Good News
about Jesus. Today’s Word, teaches us that no
one who seeks Jesus out is ever turned away. He
is always ready to show us His mercy, and to free
us from whatever makes us unclean or unloving
towards others.

BENVENUTI A ST. DAVID’S
Ordinario: Sesta Domenica – B –
La lebbra non ha cessato di erigere barriere fra gli uomini. I lebbrosi di oggi sono gli
ammalati dimenticati negli ospedali, gli emarginati del quarto mondo relegati in baracche
malsane, i pubblicani e le prostitute che i nostri ambienti benpensanti mettono al bando.
Di fronte a tutte queste situazioni, abbiamo la possibilità di partecipare personalmente
alla storia semplice e meravigliosa dell’incontro tra Gesù e il lebbroso. Senza dimenticare
che anche noi siamo lebbrosi, e abbiamo bisogno di essere guariti.
