Reading 3, Phil 1:21-26 : Life is Christ and death is profit

21    For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
22    If it is to be life in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell.
23    I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.
24    But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.
25    Convinced of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith,
26    so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.

Gospel, Mt 8:1-4 : Jesus cleanses a leper.

1    When he came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him;
2    and behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, if you will, you can make me clean."
3    And he stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, "I will; be clean." And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4    And Jesus said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a proof to the people."
