28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 9, 2016

TRANSFORMATIVE GRATITUDE

Last week we spoke about how we increase our faith. And how do we do that? We said, we embrace the cross. We move towards it knowing that it is not the end, but part of the necessary journey towards the resurrection.

This week, our readings ask us to consider how we transform our pain and suffering – knowing that it is often something we cannot get rid of (try though we may), but that we can transform.

We learn this through two stories – the story of Naaman and 10 lepers who are healed. In both cases, you will find that transformation occurs only when they surrender their ego to humility.
