Today on the 12th Sunday of Luke, the Gospel lesson comes to us from Luke 17:12-19. This Gospel lesson is a message of suffering and gratitude. Ten lepers call out to Jesus and ask for mercy. He tells them to go and show yourselves to the priests. In their obedience, and as they are walking, they are healed. Sadly, only one shows gratitude and cries out loudly, falling in worship at Jesus' feet. Father Gregory shares a practical message about gratitude and how it is more than an attitude. Being grateful with a sense of God's wonder should be practiced and is a way of life. We cultivate a sense of gratitude by coming to church, serving others, and focusing daily on the little things done in love.
