As they were making their way toward the village, they noticed it. Strength and vitality were coming back into their ravaged bodies. The arm that had been useless only moments before is in full operation. The leg that had been dragging is now kicking. The fingers that had been missing are restored. These 10 men weren't surprised but at the same time they were completely amazed. They couldn't help themselves. Yes, it's really true! We are truly healed from this dreaded disease! We can return to our wives and children, to the normal life of society now!
This incident is referring to the famous passage from the gospel of Luke, chapter 17, where Jesus tells the 10 lepers to go and show themselves to the priests.
