That is how many lepers returned to thank Jesus in today's Gospel.
Just a single foreigner out of a group of ten cured people.
I admit, I scoff at the 90% every time I hear this passage. I mean, the nerve of these folks. Our Lord takes time out of His glorious day to perform a miracle for them, and only one has the decency to come back and thank Him?
Yes, I scoff at them, even though I go day in and day out forgetting to thank my Savior for the miracles He has done for me.
Today alone I have yet to thank Him for the gift of of my life, for the breath I just took.
I did not thank Him for the fact that I went to Mass without fear for my life.
Nor did I thank Him for the gift of our pastor, my family, or my friends.
I did not thank Him for the abundant food I had to eat, the roof over my head, or the fact that I can write this very post.
I failed to thank Him for calling me to follow Him, my faith, and everything He has forgiven me for.
In fact, I'm starting to think that if I thanked Him for "only" 10% of the miracles He has given me ... it would be an improvement.
