For our salvation, our Lord came down to us. He desires to heal us spiritually from within and physically. All we need do is cry out to Him in true faith. Do we do Him homage by seeking Him out with a contrite heart and reverence?Do we worship Him as the leper did? For the leper did not come to Him seeking out a physician but for the Son of God to heal Him.

By Jesus example we give all Glory and Praise to God our Father seeking none for ourselves. And are obedient to the laws of the Church He established. Amen

GOSPEL Matthew 8:1–4

When Jesus came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. And then a leper approached, did him homage, and said, “Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.” He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, “I will do it. Be made clean.” His leprosy was cleansed immediately. Then Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one, but go show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.”
