Embrace your leper

The story goes that one day as Sr. Francis was riding through the valley below Assisi, he came upon a leper, as there was leprosarium near by. He abhorred lepers. The very sight of a leper was repulsive to him. This day, however, he was moved to dismount his horse and embrace the leper with a kiss. And it happened, "what had seemed bitter to me was turned into sweetness of soul and body."

Sometimes our lepers are those who have hurt us, our enemy, those who are different from us. Sometimes our leper is within, those things about ourselves we do not like. Our addictions, grudges, resentments, the dark secrets we hold hidden within, are also our lepers.

Too be free, to heal, to find peace, the first move is to embrace your leper!
