A powerful crucifix known as the "miraculous" crucifix of Our Lord of Esquipula, from an outdoor chapel at El Santuario de Chimayo, Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Believers worldwide come to visit, with prayers of petition for healing, thanks, and praise. People have left rosaries, pictures and prayers behind,symbolic of their hopes.

Today's scripture from Luke 17, describes the healing of the ten lepers. The lepers first petitioned Jesus, and he answered their prayers, healing them. But only one thanked him; and Christ responded, "...your faith has made you well." Gratitude for the many gifts God has given us is integral to our response.
