6th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Reading I: Leviticus 13:1-2,44-46 II: 1Cor 10:31-11:1
Mark 1:40-45

40 And a leper came to him beseeching him, and kneeling said to him, "If you will, you can make me clean."
41 Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, "I will; be clean."
42 And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.
43 And he sternly charged him, and sent him away at once,
44 and said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to the people."
45 But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.

Interesting Details
One Main Point

Jesus heals me and restores me to the community.

  1. How does my sin, my uncleanness, cut me off from the human community?
  2. How does Jesus restore sinners like me to the community? How do I experience the joy of rejoining the community?
  3. Do I follow Jesus to His quiet place of prayer? What do I experience there?
