SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
FOR THE GLORY OF GOD
The entire history of the Jewish people is directed toward one goal: that God might
be glorified through the chosen people. Christians, too, are called to “do everything
for the glory of God.” In today’s scriptures Paul reminds us that the best way for us
to glorify God is to seek to benefit “the many,” as Christ did when he shed his blood
for all of humankind.
The reading from Leviticus explains one way the Jews sought to benefit the many, by keeping lepers and
leprosy away from the chosen people. Jesus finds a better way. He cures the leper, who immediately
re‑enters the community to spread the good news about Jesus to everyone who will listen. In this way both
Jesus and the leper fulfill their calling to glorify the God who fills us “with the joy of salvation.”
TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — The leper will dwell apart, making an abode outside the camp (Leviticus 13:1-2, 44-46).
Psalm — I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation (Psalm 32).
Second Reading — Do everything for the glory of God; be imitators of Christ (1 Corinthians 10:31 — 11:1).
Gospel — The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean (Mark 1:40-45).
COMPASSION AND GENEROSITY
Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.
—George Washington
LET US PRAY
We commend to your prayers our parishioners who
are sick at this time and for those who have died.

FAITH FORMATION
Think about the choices we make as
individuals and as a family. Talk about
some of the choices you have made as a
family (where to go on vacation, what
activities to do together, how to spend our
evenings, and so on). How does your
family go about making these decisions?
What do your choices communicate to
others about your family's values?
All our choices reflect our faith, and others
are watching. Prayer together, asking God
to help your family show compassion to
others in your family decisions.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Have you thought about helping someone
learn about Baptism?
Do you enjoy reading and exploring the
Bible?
Volunteer with our RCIA Teams for Adults
and Children.
Workshops and other training are

SEXTO DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO
PARA LA GLORIA DE DIOS
La historia completa del pueblo judío va dirigida hacia una meta:
que Dios sea glorificado por medio del pueblo escogido. Los
cristianos también están llamados a “hacer todo para la gloria de
Dios”. En las Escrituras de hoy Pablo nos recuerda que la mejor
manera que tenemos para glorificar a Dios es buscar el beneficio
de “todos” tal como Cristo hizo cuando derramó su sangre por
toda la humanidad.
La lectura de Levítico explica una manera en que los judíos
buscaban el beneficio de muchos, manteniendo a los leprosos y
la lepra alejados del pueblo escogido.
Jesús encuentra una manera mejor:
cura al leproso, que inmediatamente
retorna a la comunidad para difundir la
Buena Nueva de Jesús a todo el que le
escuche. De este modo tanto Jesús
como el leproso cumplen con su
llamado de glorificar al Dios que nos
llena “con la alegría de la salvación”.
LECTURAS DE HOY
Primera lectura — El leproso habitará solo, fuera del
campamento (Levítico 13:1-2, 44-46).
Salmo — Perdona, Señor, nuestros pecados (Salmo 32 [31]).
Segunda lectura — Haz todo por la gloria de Dios; sean
imitadores de Cristo (1 Corintios 10:31 — 11:1).
Evangelio — Jesús, después de haber curado a un hombre
leproso, le pide que no se lo cuente a nadie (Marcos 1:40-45).
