There is no one found to return and give glory to God, but this stranger. Catholic Gospels - Matthew, Luke, Mark, John - Inspirations of the Holy Spirit Luke 17:11-19

11 And it came to pass, as he was going to Jerusalem, he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain town, there he met him ten men that were lepers, who stood far away;
13 And they lifted up their voice, saying: Jesus, master, have mercy on us.
14 when Jesus saw them, he said: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, they were made clean.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God.
16 And he fell on his face before his feet, giving thanks: and this was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering, said, Were not ten made clean? and where are the nine?
18 There is no one found to return and give glory to God, but this stranger.
19 And he said to him: Arise, go your way; for your faith has made you whole.

Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time - There is no one found to return and give glory to God, but this stranger. A lot people make their prayers with faith. Before they know it, their prayers are answered. They begin to find logical explanations to justify how they were answered, and finally they decide that it was not God who answered them, but circumstances or coincidences that came about to fulfil their desires.

How ungrateful people can be. I listen to every prayer and I always consider it, I may substitute what is asked for something different because it is more in conformity with my will, but I assure you, there is always an answer to every prayer. I am not deaf.

In order to satisfy the needs of the one who prays, I have to take into consideration many different things. Many are trying to get rid of the cross that I have given them in order to purify them, to destroy their pride and to make them realize that I am the Lord who is calling to sanctity. So I may not answer their prayers exactly as they want, but more in accordance to what they need. To many I offer my peace and the strength to carry on.

Unfortunately Paradise was lost because of sin, and to restore everything to the original perfection, you must live this life following Godís Commandments until the door is open to my Heavenly Paradise.

It is part of the Divine Will that humanity be restricted of the divine gifts of perfection and eternal life, until all are made clean in my blood and purified in the fire of the Holy Spirit, until the resurrection of the dead when all will be judged according to their works and there will be some going to everlasting life of joy in Heaven while many will be sent to everlasting disgrace in Hell.

But I am satisfied with the just man who prays with praise and adoration, who brings humbly his needs before me and who is thankful to receive everything from my hands. You are giving glory to God every time you are grateful for all your goods, for your life, and for the salvation that I have promised.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love is everlasting.
