We hear in our gospel reading this week how in a village between Galilee and Samaria, Jesus met a group of people with leprosy. And they cried out for mercy – just as they did when anyone came near them. In their sickness, in their loneliness, in their poverty … They reached out for help. And Jesus responded in a way that far exceeded anything they could ever have expected. Instead of tossing them a few coins or a bit of food (things which might seem to help but were really only answering the symptoms of their sickness) Jesus went to the problem itself, and healed them.
They were cleansed, and the last picture we have is of them scurrying down the road (off to the priests who would certify their new condition)…all that is except one.
