Sunday’s Gospel:  Be the One

In the story of the Ten Lepers who were cleansed and healed by Jesus, only one came back to thank and praise Him. The other nine were nowhere to be found. Yet it seems that people spend a lot of time looking at the reasons why the nine were not grateful, etc…  But I’d like to focus on the ONE who did return to Christ.

What was it about him; what was going on in his mind; why was he different? I submit that if week look closely at the one healed leper, we have the key to true Christian living. Be the one!
