    • Thy Faith Hath Made Thee Whole
      Healing Of The Ten Lepers
      Luke 18-18-27
      2012-12-23
      SYNOPSIS:The response of gratitude of the one leper of the ten who were healed by Jesus prompted our Lord to say to him " thy faith hath made thee whole." This common expression of Jesus must be investigated closely, for in each instance, different aspects of faith are revealed. This Samaritan's faith was expressed in two ways, that he prayed for mercy and he gave thanks for his great gift. Regarding his prayer, we have a detailed interlude to talk about the Jesus prayer and how we should pray it, including praying it for others. Then we link the prayer to thanksgiving, for without the latter, the former withers. As we become aware of how much God's mercy surrounds us and helps us. we thank Him, and seek his mercy even more, for ourselves and others. Our heart becomes softer, and feels the needs of others - our heart becomes like that of Jesus. These two things, seeking God's mercy and thanking him for everything - are required for salvation.
