11 As he continued his journey to Jerusalem, he traveled through Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was entering a village, ten lepers met [him]. They stood at a distance from him13and raised their voice, saying, “Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!” 14 And when he saw them, he said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” As they were going they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, realizing he had been healed, returned, glorifying God in a loud voice; 16 and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. He was a Samaritan. 17 Jesus said in reply, “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? 18 Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” 19 Then he said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”

Ask anybody who has survived bouts of drug use as much as alcoholism during their younger years which in my opinion runs from the age of nine through your mid 40s, how did we even stay alive without faith in a world full of depredation. We came out the other side alive so to speak filled with a haze that continued for some who were weak yet life will always be ate-up with disease unless we combat our old age with vegetables, fresh garlic and seafood with Christ to realize our plight of reality needs faith to be saved. Jesus said to show ourselves to the priest cleansed by confession and release of the baptism that brought you before God’s Kingdom to give thanks for love, faith and hope of truth. (your reality) Your inner youth. Amen.

Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Prayer intentions. Silence for the prayers of others. #healRyan In Jesus Name. Amen. Precious Blood

**Distance fear truth**

Jerusalem journeyed Jesus
Galilee Samaria through
Lepers ten produce
Distance fear truth

Master Jesus called
Us pity Lord
Yourselves priests show
Cleansed going fro

Realizing one clean
God glorifying return
Voice loud pristine
Thanked Jesus discern

Cleansed nine where
Foreigner Samaritan stare
Go up stand
Saved faith man
