Nm 12:1-13 / Mt 14:22-36
Where did Miriam’s leprosy come from? Was it God with a lightening bolt who made her flesh corrupt and her skin rot? No, God had no need to do anything. The rot and the sickness came from inside her. Jealousy and envy were rotting her soul, as they can rot ours. And what a waste. God has made us each different and blessed each of us with what we need. If we but have the eyes to see what God has put within our reach, our hearts will be merry, our days will be full, and our souls will be content.
