Sixth Sunday Ordinary Time

2 Corinthians 7:1: Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
  PRAYER FOR THE DAY ...
Heavenly Father, Purify our heart, our life, our body, our influence, O God. May our words and our thoughts be blameless in your sight. We want to be holy as you are holy and honor you as only you are worthy of honor. You alone are God! Through Infant Jesus we ask this. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 1:40-45)
The leper who came to Jesus did rather quite significant. He approached Jesus self-assuredly and humbly, expecting that Jesus could and would cure him and make him whole yet again. Usually a leper would be stoned or at least warded off if he tried to come close to a rabbi. Jesus not only grants the man his appeal, but he demonstrates the personal love, sympathy, and tenderness of God in his physical touch. The medical facts of his day would have regarded such contact as serious risk for incurring infection. Jesus met the man’s depression with compassion and tender kindness. He communicated the love and mercy of God in a symbol that spoke more expressively than words. He touched the man and completes him clean – not only physically on the other hand spiritually. The Lord is ready to heal us and free us from fear, prejudice, and anything else that might hold us back from approaching others with selfless love and concern for their welfare. The Holy Spirit sets us free to love as God loves – with mercy, compassion, goodness, and sympathetic care. How do we treat our neighbor, especially those who have been discarded, ill-treated, and left alone. Do we approach them with the same love and compassion which Christ has shown to us?
