February 11, 2018 • 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday Readings: Leviticus 13:1–2, 44–46; 1 Corinthians 10:31—11:1; Mark 1:40–45
For Catechists and Teachers
Scripture Background
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus adds to his growing community and shows us that God’s love is Materials
for everyone. He touches and heals. People in Jesus’ time feared lepers and made them live apart. Jesus’ action of touching the leper gives us an example of including people in our lives whom many consider outcasts and outsiders.
The leper, whose faith in Jesus brought him to ask for the cure, is so moved by this sign of God’s love that he tells the Good News everywhere he goes. So much so, Mark tells us, that Jesus could no longer enter a town openly.
Connecting Scripture and Doctrine
Children love to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It is a time they can express their love for others and receive messages of love back. Good News celebrates this desire of children to reach out and helps them see how they can serve others as followers of Jesus. The children will recognize Father Damien as an example of a Christian who reached out to outcasts.
“Prayer to Jesus is answered by him already during his ministry, through signs that anticipate the power of his death and Resurrection: Jesus hears the prayer of faith, expressed in words” (CCC, 2616). See also CCC, 1407–1408.
