Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Year C

October 9, 2016

 

Gospel: Lk 17:11-19
 
As Jesus continued his journey to Jerusalem, he traveled through Samaria and Galilee. As he was entering a village, ten lepers met him. They stood at a distance from him and raised their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!” And when he saw them, he said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” As they were going they were cleansed. And one of them, realizing he had been healed, returned, glorifying God in a loud voice; and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. He was a Samaritan (*). Jesus said in reply, “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” Then he said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”

This week’s spotlight
 
Glory to God
 
At the beginning of the Mass, we sing or recite a long prayer in honor of God called the "Gloria.” The first few words are taken from the song of the angels who celebrated the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Like the angels, we praise and thank the Father. In addition, we praise Jesus as the Son of God and our Savior. Together with the Holy Spirit they are one God, equal in majesty, Glory to God for ever!
 
Through him, with him, in him
 
At the end of the eucharistic prayer, the priest lifts the body and blood of Christ and  prays: "Through him, with him, in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, almighty Father, for ever and ever." It is through, with, and in Jesus that we are children of God, and able to praise him. This prayer is called the doxology. We respond with the "Great Amen," our whole-hearted agreement with this prayer.
 
Reflection
 
Open your eyes
 
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see a miracle? Maybe you thought your faith would be so much stronger if you did. I’m not so sure. Listen to what the Gospel tells us this Sunday. Jesus meets and cures ten lepers, but only one recognizes him as the Lord and returns to say “thank you.” This story helps us to understand that miracles don’t automatically give us faith. Miracles may grab our attention and turn us toward God, but we have to open our eyes to see him. If we do, we will begin to see the wonders that God does for us every day. The eyes of faith begin to see that God is loving us through our friends, our parents, and the events that happen around us. We can also begin to let God love others through us. Don’t wait for a miracle to make you believe. Open your eyes to God’s wonderful love. Thank Jesus, like the leper who returned, and you will become a miracle of love.

Praying after Communion
 
After receiving Holy Communion, you can say this prayer silently to yourself. If you have not yet received your First Communion, you can still say this prayer because of your desire to receive Jesus.
 
Father, through Jesus, in communion with the whole Church, I thank you for coming into my heart. We want to live in union with you, and never to forget to thank you for your healing love. May we always recognize our marvelous love in the Eucharist.
 
This week…
 
Be grateful fop God's love
 
God has given us so many gifts that sometimes we take them for granted. Pick one day this week and count up all the ways that God has blessed you. Then thank him for each one.
 
Recognize the signs of love
 
One evening this week, take the time to remember all the signs of love and generosity that you have given to others as well as all those that you have received.
