St. Martin of Tours

Lk 17: 11-19

On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. T

hen one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.”

Spirit of gratitude

Living in a spirit of gratitude can be challenging at times. How many thank you cards go unwritten or words of thanks go unspoken.  I remember sitting at the dining room table as a child hastily scribbling words of appreciation as my mom instilled in me the importance of writing notes of thanks for gifts received.  We have so many opportunities to lift someone up and be a sign of hope by using the simple words “thank you!” Even little acts of kindness from others deserve an expression of gratitude.  How can I be a sign of hope to others? 

I invite each of us today to be mindful of the many blessings we receive each and every day and to pause and glorify God for the good works bestowed on us.  Let us find ways to bring a smile to someone’s face through simple words of gratitude.

Prayer

Lord, I ask you to give me an intimate knowledge
of the many gifts I have received,
that, filled with gratitude for all,
I may in all things love and serve your Divine Majesty.
Amen

—Prayer based on Spiritual Exercises §233
