It can be easy for us not to realize just what a curse it was to have leprosy. It meant a person was completely cut off from society. It meant a person was forced to beg for survival. It meant a person was thought of as having done some terrible evil because they had become a leper. So why is it Naaman would not do the simple and ordinary to be healed? And how is it that wen God does extraordinary things for the lepers, they could not see how critical it was to be grateful? And yet it can be that way with us too.
Homily given at Camp Trinity, New Haven, Missouri, for the CBC Brothers in Prayer Retreat. Readings for Today. Listen to our other homilies.
