Be Thou Made Clean

3rd Sunday after Epiphany 2018

This is the Third Sunday after the Epiphany and the theme of the season is still proclaimed: undying faith in the Son of God becoming Man.  St. Paul, whose feast this week celebrates his conversion, reminds us in the Epistle to be, as much as possible, at peace with all men.  In the Gospel Our Lord performs a miracle in curing the leper and then another miracle for the servant of the centurion.  This account again emphasizes the showing of His Divinity through His Humanity to the Jews in the leper and to the Gentiles in the servant of the pagan centurion.  We should take up the prayer of the soldier, especially at Holy Communion, and ask that our souls may be healed.  Then we can hear those beautiful words to the leper that made him clean of that terrible disease.
