THE GOSPEL

Luke 17:11-19

They stood at a distance from him and raised their voices, saying,
“Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!”

We
are
ten
 lepers,
with scars
and wounds––and hope
for your healing
touch.

From our souls’ depths
we raise our
voices
to
 you.

 “Jesus, Master!
 Have pity
  on us!”

As we glimpse
the grace
you
pour
upon us,
we thank you.


THE FIRST READING

2 Kings 5:14-17

Naaman said: “Please let me, your servant, have two mule-loads of earth, for I will no longer offer holocaust or sacrifice to any other god except to the Lord.”

Naaman
 was looking for healing.
He got “go-wash-in-the-river” instead.
And he was healed. He carried home holy ground,
 on which God, using plain things, had done this miracle.

Lord, let us find you everywhere
and relish your holy ground,
finding your holy
love there
in our
 lives.


THE SECOND READING

2 Timothy 2:8-13

Therefore, I bear with everything for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus.

Jesus,
sometimes you ask us to
suffer hardships.

So,

help us bear all things
for the sake of
 those we
 love.

Let us bring them with us
as we rise with
you.
