In the bitter cold

Brother Ed, OFM

In the bitter cold of winter, Lord, I ask that You bring comfort to those without homes.  Ignite the flame of compassion within us all to care for those less fortunate.  Help us be Your hands, caring for the needy people of our world.  Amen.   
Mark 1:40-45

A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched the leper, and said to him,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
Then he said to him, “See that you tell no one anything,
but go, show yourself to the priest
and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
that will be proof for them.”
The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
He spread the report abroad
so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
He remained outside in deserted places,
and people kept coming to him from everywhere.

Refection: When was the last time you felt like the Lord gave you peace, and you wanted to shout to the mountain top THANK YOU. but you stayed quiet and thanked him from your heart?
