‘Gospel Truth’ for October 13, 2019

Listen to this week's edition of our reflections on the Gospel reading for the twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time, prepared by the late Jill Bevilacqua. In the Gospel, Jesus cleanses ten lepers and underscores our need for healing and the obligation to be grateful.

In this week's edition of "Gospel Truth”, the late Jill Bevilacqua and Seán-Patrick Lovett bring us readings and reflections from the Gospel of St. Luke 17:11-19.

Listen to our Gospel Reflections

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."
