Today’s reading is from Matthew’s gospel, but it’s this same wonderful story from Luke, which happens often! Lots of their accounts are similar. So, I bring you this same reflection from last year. God is good! All the time…
When Jesus had finished all his words to the people,
he entered Capernaum.
A centurion there had a servant who was ill and about to die,
and he was valuable to him.
When he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him,
asking him to come and save the life of his servant.
They approached Jesus and strongly urged him to come, saying,
“He deserves to have you do this for him,
for he loves our nation and he built the synagogue for us.”
And Jesus went with them,
but when he was only a short distance from the house,
the centurion sent friends to tell him,
“Lord, do not trouble yourself,
for I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof.
Therefore, I did not consider myself worthy to come to you;
but say the word and let my servant be healed.
