Living God’s Word
Jesus, you came to bring us into deeper communion with the
Father and one another. Give us the courage to reach out, as
you did, to those in need of our compassion and help. Let us
not be afraid of the opinions of others when we see that good
can be done. Amen.

Reflecting on God’s Word
These first days of Jesus’ ministry present him preaching, teaching,
and healing to bring people to know that God is near. His message
and his deeds bring people back to full life in the community. By
casting out demons and curing the sick he restores to full humanity
those suffering from possession and illness. Today we find Jesus
confronting a condition that must have been even more excruciating—leprosy.
To be a leper was to be cut off from others in all ways. You were cast
out of the community, isolated, doomed to live in deserted places, no
longer part of the human family, unable to participate in any social
events, and considered unfit to worship God. It was assumed that if
you had leprosy, you had sinned in some way. Your life was summed
up in the words the Law of Moses told you to cry out whenever
anyone came near, “Unclean, unclean!”
For Jesus to touch a leper meant that in the eyes of others he also
became unclean and unfit to associate and worship with others.
Even so, when a leper asked for healing, Jesus was unequivocal in his
reply: “I do will it. Be made clean” (Mark 1:41). It is easy to hear in
his response the authority of the Son of God, set on giving glory to his
Father. Yet Jesus, ever respectful of the law, sent the man to the
priest, as commanded in the book of Leviticus. In Jesus, pity took
precedence over the law, but did not abolish it.

Have you ever thought about joining a MOPS
(Mothers of Preschoolers) group? Mops is a
nationally recognized organization that brings
moms together that have children between the ages
of newborn through kindergarten. Meetings will
most likely be held on the first and third Fridays of
the month between 9:00-11:00 a.m. in the St. Peter
Annex Building. Dues will be $75.00 per semester
(fall and spring). During a Mops meeting, moms
can gather to learn new things by listening to a
guest speaker, create a new “pinteresty” craft,
participate in a service project, or just visit with
other moms. Childcare will be provided during the
meeting by having our little ones attend “Moppets.”
Older, wiser, experienced moms are invited to join
Mops as a “Mentor Mom.” We are looking to start
a new Mops group at St. Peters for the spring
semester. If you are interested in joining a Mops
group, please contact Katherine Trimble at
We are keeping up with technology…
