And it came to pass, when he was ina certain city, behold a man full of leprosy, who seeing Jesus, and falling on his face, besought him, saying: Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And stretching forth his hand, he touched him, saying: I will. Be thou cleansed. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. And he charged him that he should tell no man, but, Go, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing according as Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. But the fame of him went abroad the more, and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. And he retired into the desert, and prayed.
Luke 5:12-16 (Douay-Rheims Bible)

Prayer Reflection

Dear Father I think there are times when we too should lay ourselves at Jesus feet and ask for cleansing of the many sins that invade our souls. We are filled with leprosy in our dealings with people, often pointing our soiled and dirty fingers. Where is our testimony of being cleansed of the sins and ills that mar our bodies and souls. Do we change when say we are faith filled and give our lives as examples of God's grace. As your children dear Father we seek to live in your light, but if we are the children of evil then we will always seek to sin. Your sent your Son to bring us hope that we too can become clean from the sins that eat away at our bodies and souls.
