 The ‘I Will’ Formula of Jesus’ Healing”

We are forgiven, and our souls are cleansed, from the spiritual leprosy of sin when we repent of our sins. This is because God is a God of love Who waits patiently for us. No matter how many sins we have committed or how badly we have behaved, we know God forgives us. The only condition required of us is that we ask for forgiveness with a repentant heart. We need only kneel before him and ask him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean” We are sure to hear his words of absolution, “Very well– your sins are forgiven, and you are clean” echoed in the Sacrament of Reconciliation


Jesus calls every one of us to demolish the walls that separate us from each other and to welcome the outcasts and the untouchables of society. These include homosexuals, AIDS victims, alcoholics, the imprisoned, drug-addicts, and marginalized groups such as the divorced, the unmarried, single mothers, migrant workers, and the mentally ill. God’s loving hand must reach out to them through us. Jesus wants us to touch their lives.


Many of us are sick of both self contracted sickness and the sickness imposed on us. Mark tells us today that whatever we are suffering from does not really matter for our God. What He requires from us is to come out of our hiding places. He needs us to break away from the glue of incredulity and be optimistic that He is a life changing God. His response to the leper is, “I will; be healed!” That is the language that every ugly situation in our lives should hear. Jesus’ hands are outstretched waiting for who to touch. Friends and family members may not be willing to associate with you simply because your life is no longer as it used to be. But listen to Jesus who says today, “I will.” I will simply means, “I accept you. I don’t care about the type of story that is associated with you. You mean everything for me. You may be a “leper” in the eyes of the world, but for me you are a beloved. How can I say I won’t? It is for your sake that I came. I have loved you so much to reject you at this point. I cannot possibly pass you by. I cannot resist your condition anymore. You have suffered so much bondage. It is now time for you to be free like the rest of the world. You cannot continue to hide. Therefore I say to you, “I will; be healed!”
