Christ the great healer.

Today the gospel talked about the leper that Christ cleanses. Leprosy is a neurological illness that numbs your body, especially the extremities. They go numb, you can’t feel anything. Aren’t we all leapers in so many ways? Aren’t we numb to the needs around us, aren’t we numb of the reality of the world, nothing fazes us. Like one missionary shared with us, “I was asleep and Haiti was an awaking moment for me”. In Haiti Christ cleans not only physical leprosy, but especially the leprosy from us missionaries. He heals us, so we can feel again. So we can feel the needs of others; so we can feel His presence in our lives now and through all our lives; so we can feel and love. With the love that’s true. So we can feel and start searching for the meaning in our lives; so we can feel and start living with a positive attitude; so we can feel and be joyful and thankful.

Let’s ask our Lord, today and every day, like the leper: “Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean”.
