Wish Granted

“If you wish you can make me clean.”

Just a reflection about this line; I was struck hearing this line from today’s gospel. It reminds me of forgiveness. If you were in the position of Jesus, what would you feel if a leper would say this to you? What would you feel when a friend that hurted you says this?

Everyone was given the talent to forgive. Use it. Just as we see our friends who hurted us, who betrayed us in the person of the leper saying, “If you wish, we can start all over again. If you wish, we can still be friends.” We can forgive only if we would be willing, only if we wish to do it.

In your heart, you can still clean the image of the people who hurted you; only if you wish.

God be with you.
