To learn the art of living is to know that Jesus is the Way. (Pope Benedict, The New Evangelization)

Luke 5:12-16
Of course I want to! Be clean.

In his ministry Jesus changed the lives of those who came to him.  We can learn much from the leper’s attitude and approach. He was under no illusion about his need for healing; he was humble and expectant:  ‘Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.’ (Luke 5:13). Jesus was willing: the leper was restored to health. For us, too, the ‘art of living’ is learned when we come to Jesus and open our lives to him. Then our happiness and joy is not fleeting but rather we know a deep, interior peace. We are instruments of God’s peace. This peace dispels fear and overflows to others.

Lord Jesus, hold me close to you. Keep me within your embrace. Do not let go of me. Then I will serve you with all my heart.

Our Father…,   Ten Hail Marys …, Glory be…
