Considered contagious, leprosy kept its carriers away from human conviviality. Now, the ten lepers remain at a distance and ask for the compassion of Jesus, who demands an act of faith from them: without yet being healed, to present themselves to priests; these will prove the veracity of healing. On the way, the ten find themselves purified from the disease, but only one returns "glorifying God", and does so "aloud", so that everyone may participate in his joy and become aware of The Power of God. He was a Samaritan. Prostrate yourself, confirming your faith in Jesus. What about the other nine? Stop hearing from the Master's lips the crowning of the cure: "Stand up and go! His faith saved him."

– “Fazei justiça aos indefesos e aos órfãos, / ao pobre e ao humilde absolvei! / Libertai o oprimido, o infeliz, / da mão dos opressores arrancai-os!”
– Eu disse: “Ó juízes, vós sois deuses, / sois filhos todos vós do Deus altíssimo! / E, contudo, como homens morrereis, / caireis como qualquer dos poderosos!”
Rise, O Lord, judge the earth!
- Do justice to the helpless and orphans, / to the poor and the humble absolve! / Free the oppressed, the unfortunate, / of the hand of the oppressors tear them off!
- I said: "O judges, you are gods, / you are children all of the most high God! / And yet, as men will die, / you will fall like any of the powerful!"
