6th Sunday - B (February 11, 2018)

 A Leper Who Breaks Protocols 

“A leper came to Jesus” and spoke to him.
He was breaking social and religious protocols. 

He must have heard of Jesus and his mercy.  What he heard about Jesus must be so consoling that it gave him enough courage to come to Jesus and speak to him.

And Jesus did not disappoint him.  He was “moved with pity” for the man.  Not only did Jesus speak to him, he even “stretched out his hands and touched him.”

We are the Body of Christ in our world today.  Who is the Jesus that we are presenting to people in our thoughts, attitudes, words, and action?  How powerful is Jesus’ mercy that others see in us?
