Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time (cycle B)
Mark 1: 30-45
A man with a horrible disease came up to Jesus. He knelt in front of him and said: “If you want to, you can cure me.” Jesus felt sorry for the man, and he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, “I do want it. You are cured.” Right away the man got better. Jesus told him not to tell anyone, but to go show the leaders that he was healed. But the man could not keep the secret. He told everyone he saw that Jesus had healed him. After that people crowded around wherever he went. He went into the desert, but the people followed him.
When wonderful things happen we want to share the news. Jesus is a wonderful thing that has happened to us all.
