06-25-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 25, 2016
The centurion said (to Jesus) in reply, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed. . . .”  When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.” Mt_8:5-17

So what was it that so impressed Jesus about this man’s faith?  Well to begin with, he was not even a Jew, and yet he still believed Jesus had the power/ability to heal his servant.  Next, he respected the Jewish rules of entry into non-Jewish, gentile  homes.  If Jesus entered the Centurion’s home he would have been made unclean and would have had to go through a lengthy process to be made clean again.  And the Centurion respected that fact.  Finally, the Centurion knew that the Word of Jesus would be as effective in following Jesus’ command as his soldiers were to following his commands.  That’s faith!

Do we believe in Jesus like that, beloved?  We repeat these words of the Centurion with every Eucharist we celebrate!  “ONLY SAY THE WORD!”  Want healing, beloved?
