Looking ahead

By Father Perry D. Leiker

NEWS FLASH: Jesus touches a leper and cleanses him! He is completely healed!

This indeed would be newsworthy even to the enemies of Jesus; and it was. Some news travels fast. Some news pricks everyone’s curiosity and even admiration. This news caused people to come from everywhere to seek healing and to personally experience the power of Jesus.

Is that power available to us? Does Jesus continue to heal and strengthen and renew us? Is Jesus touching us often or every day?

We are coming soon to the season of Lent when we, as a community of faith, will collectively, but also individually, seek healing, renewal, love and the strengthening of our faith. When Ash Wednesday arrives this year, let us listen to God speak through his word. Let us pray together and seek together for his power to reach into our lives to heal, love and strengthen our faith.
