Reflection for Friday June 30, Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 8:1-4

Gospel: Matthew 8:1-4
When Jesus came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. And then a leper approached, did him homage, and said, "Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean." He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, "I will do it. Be made clean." His leprosy was cleansed immediately. Then Jesus said to him, "See that you tell no one, but go show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them."

Reflection:
A woman who was scheduled for a sensitive operation was advised by a relative to first go to a priest. So that she would first be conferred with the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Then after the sacrament she was also told to go the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel so that she could spend precious time with Jesus.

After a few days the operation went on smoothly and the woman eventually recovered and she resumed her normal life. Jesus heals us through the hand of the priest who confers to us the Sacrament of Anointing of the sick. Jesus heals us also through our time spent with Him in the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.

There is always a healing experience whenever we seek the presence of Jesus in our lives. We may not immediately experience this healing but it’s always there being conferred to us by Jesus, it’s either physical or spiritual. He confers it to us through the Sacrament for the Sick and through our prayerful encounter with Him.

In our gospel a person sick with leprosy approached Jesus, did him homage, and prayerfully said, “Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.” Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, “I will do it. Be made clean. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
