The leper in today’s Gospel offers us a lesson in gratitude and faith. It is easy to ask for help, to call out ‘Jesus! Master! Take pity on us!’ It is not so easy to appreciate the implications of what God is doing in our lives. Of course we would all like to think that we would be the one leper who came back to give thanks to Jesus when he saw he was healed. Jesus told the leper who returned that his faith had saved him. All ten were healed, yet this man had a fuller experience of the healing hand of Jesus. And his life was surely changed because of it.
