The story of the healing of the ten lepers by Jesus has much to teach us. The relationship among the ten lepers is itself a lesson in humility. Being lepers breaks down the barriers among the nine Jews and the Samaritan.

Solidarity is often encountered among persons in need. Am I courageous enough to know my own needs and to identify with others who are dependent on God?

O Holy Spirit, grant me a courageous Sprit. May I be willing to name my neediness and to place myself in solidarity with others who are poor.
