Gospel for February 11, 2018 – MK 1:40-45
A leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched him, 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.
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.
Heart of God, Volume II, November 2, 1995
Lord Jesus, do you want to write?
Beloved children of my heart, I am here. I am the God of the Resurrection. I
know you are weary, my little lamb. Persevere in your efforts, my child, I will
not forsake you. You are only ill temporarily and it is to benefit the Kingdom of
I did not come upon this earth to bring illness and suffering. On the contrary,
I despise sickness and it is my desire to heal the sick. Many of you wonder why
there is so much illness when I, Jesus, am the Divine Healer.
Children, with my bare hands I scooped out part of the earth, filled it with
water, and called it an ocean. However, I tell you, because you have placed
toxic chemicals and wastes of all kinds into the oceans, you have sickened that
part of my creation. But none of you worry if the animals or if the fish are sick
because of your efforts, you only wonder why there are diseases and human
beings become ill. You cannot cut yourself with a sharp piece of glass and not
be scarred. You cannot poison part of my creation without it affecting you. All
of creation rests in the palm of my hand. If part of my creation bestows injury
and illness upon the other part, how shall the entire creation be not affected?
And now, my children, you have turned the sword of cannibalism and
immorality in your direction. You have placed the sword of abomination and it
now points to the womb. Do you think it is an unselfish and compassionate
person that terminates the life of the unborn child? This is murder. This is
murder. This is murder. Do you not send murderers to prison?
Yes, I, Jesus, have come upon the earth to heal the sick and make low the
proud. But I have healed you and you have rejected it. I have provided cures
for every disease upon the earth but you have aborted them. What more do you
wish me to do? In your selfish arrogance you call yourself “god.” You shall
wear your ignorance as a cloak about your shoulders for all eternity. I carry you
in the palm of my hand, but it is you, children, who, by your nature, bring about
diseases and pestilences. Your arrogance is a more deadly and virulent disease
than Ebola.87 When you are ready to accept my teachings and to accept my
commandments, healings will be plentiful.
Thank you, devoted scribe, for recording my words. Have faith, my little
children, persevere in your efforts. I bless you.
We thank you, Lord, for your words of wisdom, admonishment, and consolation.
May your people change their ways so that the great day of all healings may
come soon. Amen.
