1st Reading: Gen 9:8–15
God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
“See, I am now establishing my covenant with you
and your descendants after you
and with every living creature that was with you:
all the birds, and the various tame and wild animals
that were with you and came out of the ark.
In Sunday’s Gospel Jesus continues to demonstrate His power over evil by healing the leper. When the man found out that he was healed from leprosy, he proclaimed the awesome power of Jesus. Jesus not only freed the man from physical ailment but also set him free to give witness to the power of Christ.
