12-04-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 4, 2017
(St. John Damascene, Priest and Doctor of the Church)
A Roman centurion asked Jesus to heal his servant who was near death.  Jesus responded in the affirmative!  And yet the centurion continued, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.” Mt_8:5-11

The centurion knew that a Jew’s entrance into the house of a pagan would make them unclean and didn’t want to impose that price on Jesus either.  So, having admitted his unworthiness, he gave the example of his own authority over others, and knew that Jesus possessed equal authority over illness and even death.  Jesus was so impressed by the centurion’s faith that He complied, healing the servant from a distance and making the centurion’s faith an example that everyone else should follow.

How faithful are we, beloved, to allow God to heal others through us?  How faithful are we to risk embarrassment, pain and even death for the sake of our beloved, Jesus.  For we know, that nothing, NOTHING in this world can keep us from God’s love, even when we are not even worthy of that Love!

Have Faith, and we WILL see God’s miracles, every day!
