1 Timothy 2:1-8, Luke 7:1-10
“An astonishing faith”
Jesus was amazed at the great faith of this Roman centurion. Because of his faith, the servant was healed and was in perfect health.
Jesus was impressed with the faith of this Roman centurion. He simply trusted in the power of Jesus’ single word. This can be challenging for many of us because we find it hard to trust without reservation. We demand proofs and explanations before we dare to put our trust. Let us learn from this Roman centurion the joy of having simple faith and trust in Jesus.
“Only trust in God can transform doubts into certainty, evil into good, night into radiant dawn.” (Pope Francis)
Question for reflection:
1) How can I exercise my faith in Jesus today?
