For 26 June 2020, Friday of week 12 in Ordinary Time, based on Matthew 8:1-4
When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, â€œLord, if you choose, you can make me clean.â€ He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, â€œI do choose. Be made clean!â€ Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, â€œSee that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.â€
