6th SUNDAY (B) February 11, 2018

Leviticus 13: 1-2, 44-46; Psalm 32; I Corinthians 10: 31-11:1; Mark 1: 40-45

by Jude Siciliano, OP

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand,

touched the leper and said to him,

"I do will it. Be made clean."


When Mark describes Jesus healing the man he uses a word that literally means a snorting in anger (v. 43). The anger wasn’t directed at the leper, but at the man’s debilitating disease. Anger is a passion that may move us to act against the injustice leveled against those without voice, or rights. When we observe an injustice, see the innocent oppressed, a righteous anger should stir us to do something about it.

So we ask ourselves:

  • What injustice do we observe that stirs us to anger?

  • How shall we respond to what so moves us?
