What’s even more overwhelming than the leper’s misery? (Video)

Fr. Peter John Cameron, OP - published on 02/09/24

In the Gospel this Sunday, we see a man who approaches Jesus with unimaginable misery.

The leper who approaches Jesus in the Gospel this Sunday is overwhelmed by unimaginable misery. But there is something even more overwhelming about him: Despite his crushing affliction, he remains a person of expectation. He has decided to live his life — not in despair, but — in hope.
