Readings for today’s Mass
We are called to do the same, humbling ourselves before God and admitting our failures, while reaching out to Him because we know we are broken and imperfect yet want to strive our best to be like Him. Naaman wanted some enormous miracle to be what cured him of his leprosy, and was surprised when the cure was simply to bathe in the river seven times.
In our lives, this can relate to the experience of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. All it takes is an admittance of our failures and we are given the “cure,” or a penance, and our sins are forgiven. That’s all it takes. It isn’t a grand spectacle which makes us holy, but the simple act of humbling ourselves and being willing to admit where we went wrong. Even so, this simple act can prove to be something very difficult to execute. But the reward far outweighs the risk. After all, who wants to be a leper?
Lord, help us to be willing to humble ourselves before you and admit our brokenness. Help us to lean on you to make it right.
