Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Please read the upcoming Sunday Gospel Reading and review the questions before attending Mass on the weekend. After attending Mass, please engage your family in a discussion and answer the following questions:
What was the message of this Gospel Reading?
What was the message of the homily regarding this Gospel?
How does this pertain to my life and how can I live this message?
A leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched him, and said to him,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
He said to him, “See that you tell no one anything,
but go, show yourself to the priest
and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
that will be proof for them.”
The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
He spread the report abroad
so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
He remained outside in deserted places,
and people kept coming to him from everywhere.
