Have you ever seen a miracle? A real one? In today’s Gospel reading, we hear
about a great miracle that Christ did for some people who were suffering. Ten men had an awful skin disease called leprosy. They were suffering, so they asked Christ to heal them. Before they knew it, they were all well. Their skin sores were all gone, and they were healed. God had healed them. It was a miracle! But how many came back to thank Christ for this amazing miracle? Only one. Only one remembered to say thank you.

Saint timothy an Apostle and friend of St. Paul
Have you ever helped your parents with their work? Maybe they brought you along one day, and you tagged along. Maybe they even got you to help with a few things. This week we celebrate Saint Timothy, an important saint who helped his father a lot! This time, though, we are talking about his spiritual father, Saint Paul. If you listen to the epistle, you might have even heard one that starts, “Timothy, my son…” and that is Saint Paul writing to his young helper, Timothy.
