The general Naaman in the first reading today is offended that the prophet Elisha gave him such a simple task to perform in order to be healed of his leprosy. That was to wash seven times in the river Jordan. Yet he was completely healed. Many people today long to be healed. They look for all sorts of elaborate cures, and even elaborate prayers. There is nothing that cannot be healed or endured by the simple recitation of the Rosary. That is it. Pray the Rosary. Pray it simply. You will be okay. It will be okay. Is Mary not our Mother? Is she not with us in all our trials?
