Daily Prayer & Reading for January 12, 2023

Lord, You have taught us that it is right to love one another, treating our neighbors as we would like to be treated. Help me to remember this in the midst of my busy life. Help me to see eye-to-eye with friends and family and keep my patience at times when I feel stressed. Amen.

Mark 1:40-45

A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched the leper, and said to him,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
Then he said to him, “See that you tell no one anything,
but go, show yourself to the priest
and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
that will be proof for them.”
The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
He spread the report abroad
so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
He remained outside in deserted places,
and people kept coming to him from everywhere.

Señor, Tú nos has enseñado que lo correcto es amarnos los unos a los otros, tratando a nuestro prójimo como nos gustaría que nos trataran a nosotros. Ayúdame a recordar esto en medio de mi ajetreada vida. Ayúdame a ver de frente a mis amigos y familiares y a mantener la paciencia en los momentos en que me siento estresado. Amén.

Mc 1, 40-45

En aquel tiempo, se le acercó a Jesús un leproso para suplicarle de rodillas: “Si tú quieres, puedes curarme”. Jesús se compadeció de él, y extendiendo la mano, lo tocó y le dijo: “¡Sí quiero: sana!” Inmediatamente se le quitó la lepra y quedó limpio.

Al despedirlo, Jesús le mandó con severidad: “No se lo cuentes a nadie; pero para que conste, ve a presentarte al sacerdote y ofrece por tu purificación lo prescrito por Moisés”.

Pero aquel hombre comenzó a divulgar tanto el hecho, que Jesús no podía ya entrar abiertamente en la ciudad, sino que se quedaba fuera, en lugares solitarios, a donde acudían a él de todas partes.
