MARK 1:40-45

A leper came to him [and kneeling down] begged him and said, “If you wish, you can make me clean.” Moved with pity he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, “I do will it. Be made clean.” The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean. Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once. Then he said to him, “See that you tell no one anything, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.” The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter. He spread the report abroad so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly. He remained outside in deserted places, and people kept coming to him from everywhere.


Understand It!


A person who has leprosy.


Skin disease causing bumps to arise on the skin.


In a serious and firm manner.


To make known to a large number of people.


Explore It!

Back in biblical times, there wasn’t much known about leprosy other than that it was contagious and very scary. It was believed that leprosy was caused by people’s sins. Touching a leper would cause you to be unclean and you could even catch leprosy from them! Therefore, lepers were shunned and exiled to the outskirts of the cities to avoid contagion. But what does it mean when Jesus said, “offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed”? According to the Book of Levi Chapter 14, Verses 1-20 – there was a whole ritual that lepers had to go through to prove that they were free of the disease. It was only after they had finished the ritual that they could re-enter society, or the city, rather than continuing to live on the outskirts of the city. However, Jesus did not do this to be famous – he simply cured the leper as he cared for the other person. Jesus had even warned the leper to not tell anyone, yet the man did not listen to him.


Connect It! In this week’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us to be caring to everyone, no matter who they are. Rather than become disgusted at the sight of the leper, He touched the leper and cured him, at the risk of becoming unclean. Sometimes Jesus can be said of and caring


what may seem little to you may be very meaningful to the other person. do anything, so curing a man of leprosy is not a big deal. The same thing can you – little actions you do can make someone’s day. A small act of kindness can go a long way.

Live It!



Remember It!

Caring means to display kindness and concern for others. We all love our parents and friends but we may sometimes forget to show how much we care and appreciate them. This week, show someone how much you care for them. You can do something nice for someone, or write a card telling someone how much you care for and are thankful for them. It doesn’t even have to be someone that you know – a simple random act of kindness could maybe help someone who is having a bad day feel better.


Pray It!

Dear Lord, please help us to be more loving, caring and respectful to the people around us, even to the people we may not agree with, and to treat others the way we want to be treated. Amen.
