Evangelizing Out of the Encounter

Cycle BOrdinary TimeWeek 6

by Bishop Robert BarronFebruary 15, 2015


The strange and unsettling Gospel account of the leper approaching Jesus is the manifestation of the deeply held notions of purity and impurity, notions that were uprooted by the God who entered into every part of our human condition to heal it and make it whole. In the Gospel and today, healing incites a mission. We, like the leper, must share how the encounter with Christ has changed our lives.
