6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on February 13, 1994

Readings: Leviticus 13:1-2, 44-46; Corinthians 10:31-11:1; Mark 1:40-45

The first and last readings today are about leprosy.  Fr. Healy suggests that we all have leprosy from time to time. Fr. Healy surmises that leprosy is something that scares, threatens, or makes someone feel insecure. Even those with “gifts” can be ostracized as a leper. We’ve all counted another “out”, so that we can be sure that we are “in.” We are challenged to look for God in the faces of those that we’d otherwise reject, including gays, lesbians, people living with HIV/AIDS, and those of different races or ethnicities.

    I read once that some people are able to name things in a way that they become clear and understandable. When I first read it I think it was a French Philosopher speaking of Pope John XXIII. Fr. Healy has that gift and it is prophetically stated in this sermon.
