The readings proclaimed were 2 Kings 5:14-17; 2 Timothy 2:8-13; Luke 17:11-19.
"God is always willing to lavish grace and gifts on us, to restore us to the fullness of life that God intended for us. How do we respond? Do we carry on without recognising what we have received? Or, like this other good Samaritan of today's Gospel, do we fall on our knees and thank God? True salvation, freely offered to us by God, invokes a response of praise and thanksgiving in those who have received it."
