Gospel Reflection

God of the scriptures, you said,
‘I am the God of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob.’
We praise your holy name.

You are the living God;
Jesus is your name,
and the glory is yours.

Gospel Reading - The 10 Lepers


11As they continued onward toward Jerusalem, they reached the border between Galilee and Samaria, 12and as they entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance, 13crying out, “Jesus, sir, have mercy on us!”

14He looked at them and said, “Go to the Jewish priest and show him that you are healed!” And as they were going, their leprosy disappeared.

15One of them came back to Jesus, shouting, “Glory to God, I’m healed!” 16He fell flat on the ground in front of Jesus, face downward in the dust, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a despiseda Samaritan.

17Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the nine? 18Does only this foreigner return to give glory to God?”

19And Jesus said to the man, “Stand up and go; your faith has made you well.”

  1. Implied. Samaritans were despised by Jews as being only “half-breed” Hebrews.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
     hallowed be your name,
     your kingdom come,
     your will be done,
          on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
     as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
     and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
     now and for ever.
