GIVING the DEVIL the BENEFIT of LAW

Thomas More, Joseph and a Disobedient Leper
Homily – 6th Sunday of the Year (B)
Leviticus 13:1-2, 44-46
Mark 1:40-45

We are moved by the faith of the Leper in approaching Jesus, the compassion of Jesus in curing the Leper; but are we all that impressed with the Leper’s subsequent disobedience to Jesus command? Fr. Bill discusses the often overlooked aftermath of Jesus cure of the Leper in the Gospel of Mark; an aftermath that has grave and serious repercussions for the ministry of Jesus, and serves as a sobering example of the importance of God’s Law, and our obligation to obey.
