The readings for the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year B demonstrate the healing power of Jesus and his ability to rid us of what is unclean in our lives. The first reading (Leviticus 13:1-2, 44-46) tells what should be done if someone has leprosy. But the psalm (Psalm 32:1-2, 5, 11) is an expression of trust in God to remove our guilt. The second reading (1 Corinthians 10:31—11:1) reminds us to do all things for the glory of God. The Gospel (Mark 1:40-45) recalls how Jesus healed a leper.
A leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, “If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, “I do will it. Be made clean.”Mark 1:40-41
So we can focus this weekend on issues such as chastity and Theology of the Body. Unclean language is also a good topic. Here are some ideas.
