2015-08-23 Homily of Fr. Eduard Perrone; 13th Sunday after Pentecost (EF)


Below is the homily of Fr. Perrone from this past Sunday’s 9:30 a.m. EF Mass.

With deepest regrets there is no audio for the August 16th homily on the Eucharist, but we will attempt to get text for that in September and post it here at GrottoCast.

This homily focused on the readings for the 13th Sunday after Pentecost in the traditional calendar.

GOSPEL ¤ Luke 17. 11-19

[Our Divine Redeemer heals ten lepers, both Jews and Samaritans, who have recourse to Him. “Arise, thy faith hath made thee whole.” Through His Church Our Lord gives back health to the souls, Jews and Gentiles, who have recourse to Him.]

At that time, as Jesus was going to Jerusalem, He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee: and as he entered into a certain town, there met Him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off, and lifted up their voice, saying: Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. Whom when He saw, He said: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were made clean. And one of them, when he was that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God: and he fell on his face before His feet, giving thanks: and this was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said: Were not ten made clean? And where are the nine? There is no one found to return, and give glory to God, but this stranger. And He said to him: Arise, go thy way; for thy faith hath made thee whole.
