The Ten Lepers & their drama


  1. Leper = alienated
  2. Leprous men = capable of betrayal & murder
  3. They approached him from afar = “from exile” / from alienation
  4. Samaritan leper was doubly alienated / outcast
  5. He gave thanks = eucharisteo (Jesus gave thanks for cup & bread at Last Supper)
  6. The one who was doubly alienated gave thanks in the same way Jesus did = Samaritan leper was doubly ‘returned’ home
  7. We give thanks at liturgy for the experience of the healing of our alienation & finding a new level of belonging to Christ in the Church.

What’s my next right step to discover the mystery of healing from alienation so that our giving thanks may be saving?
