Over the past few weeks, Mark’s Gospel has revealed to us Jesus’ healing powers on one hand and the power of faith on the other. Today we are confronted with the leper. The first reading paints a very dismal picture of a leper’s life.
“Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” That question hit home for me. Unbeknownst to my parents or the doctors involved, I had a stroke at birth, which caused my hearing loss. To think that either was the consequence of their sins or mine never entered our mindswhen I was a child. Instead of seeing my condition as a divine punishment, my mom’s explanation resonated with what Jesus said to the disciples. “It is so that the works of God might be made visible through him.”
Dear St. Hubert Parishioners,
We will hold a Funeral Mass for Larry Backe on Saturday, March 28 at 11AM. The reception will be held at a different location.
Please keep his family in your prayers during this time.
At first blush, the readings today center around water—water as a source of life; water as a source of destruction; water we thirst for. And, while the water imagery is important, the readings also speak to one's relationship with God—Moses seeking God's help as he deals with his people; Paul speaking to the Romans about being in a right relationship with God, being justified by faith and, then in the gospel, Jesus entering into a relationship with the Samaritan woman.
