Gospel: Luke 17:11-19

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

On the journey towards Jerusalem, Jesus passed along the borders of Samaria and Galilee.  As Jesus was entering a village, ten lepers met him. Keeping their distance, they raised their voices and said, “Jesus, have pity on us!”  When Jesus saw them, he responded, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.”

On their way they were cured.  One of them, realizing that he was cured, came back praising God in a loud voice.  The cured leper threw himself on his face at the feet of Jesus and spoke his praises.  This one was a Samaritan.

Jesus took the occasion to say, ”Were not all ten made whole?  Where are the other nine?  Was there no one to return and give thanks except this foreigner?”  Jesus said to the Samaritan, “Stand up and go your way; your faith has been your salvation.”

The Good News as spoken through Luke.
