The centurion said in reply, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof;

only say the word and my servant will be healed.

1 Centurion pppas0163

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8:5-17.

When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion approached him and appealed to him,
saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully.”
He said to him, “I will come and cure him.”
The centurion said in reply, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.
For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come here,’ and he comes; and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
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.
I say to you, many will come from the east and the west, and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the banquet in the kingdom of heaven,
but the children of the kingdom will be driven out into the outer darkness, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”
And Jesus said to the centurion, “You may go; as you have believed, let it be done for you.” And at that very hour (his) servant was healed.
Jesus entered the house of Peter, and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
He touched her hand, the fever left her, and she rose and waited on him.
When it was evening, they brought him many who were possessed by demons, and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick,
to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet: “He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.”

Commentary of the day

Basil of Seleucia

 Basil of Seleucia (?-c.468), Bishop
Homily 19 on the centurion, PG 85, 235f.

“Many will come from the east and the west, and will recline… at the banquet in the kingdom of heaven”

I have seen our Lord in the Gospel accomplish many miracles and, reassured by them, have strengthened my fearful words. I have seen the centurion throw himself at the Lord’s feet, nations send their firstfruits to Christ. The cross has not yet been erected and already pagans hasten towards their master. The words “Go, teach all nations” have not yet been heard (Mt 28,19) but the nations are already hastening. Their race precedes their call, they are burning with desire for the Lord. The sound of preaching has not yet been heard but they are hurrying towards the one who preaches. Peter… has now been instructed and they gather around the one who is teaching him; the light of Paul has not yet blazed beneath Christ’s standard and nations are coming with incense to adore the king (Mt 2,11).

And now, see how a centurion begs him and says to him: “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralysed, suffering dreadfully”. Here is a new miracle indeed! The servant whose limbs are paralysed leads his master to the Lord; the slaves’ sickness gives health to his owner. Seeking his servant’s healing, he finds our Lord; and while he is seeking for his slave’s cure he becomes Christ’s conquest.

Saints of the day

St. Cyril of Alexandria,

Bishop and Doctor of the Church (+ 444)

1 San_Cirillo_dAlessandria_A

 SAINT CYRIL OF ALEXANDRIA
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(+444)

        Cyril of Alexandria, nephew of Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria, gave evidences even as a youth of outstanding intelligence. After Theophilus’ death he was called to that very See, became a sincere example to his flock, and grew famous as a most excellent pastor.

He showed marked assiduousness in the preservation of the Catholic faith against Nestorius, who asserted that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary only as a man and not as God, and tha divinity was conferred on him for his merits.

After Cyril tried in vain to correct Nestorius, he denounced him to Pope St. Celestine. With this Pontiff’s delegated authority, Cyril attended some sessions of the Council of Ephesus at which the Nestorian heresy was absolutely condemned, Nestorius excommunicated, and removed from his See, and the Catholic dogma of one divine person in Christ and the divine maternity of the glorious Virgin Mary asserted.

        Solicitous for the faith alone, he suffered a great deal on account of it, carried out the greatest labors for God’s Church, produced a great many writings, and died a holy death in the year 444, in the thirty-second year of his episcopacy.

Saints of the day

St. Lasdilas, King (1041-1095)

1 San_Ladislao_B

SAINT LADISLAS
King
(1041-1095)

        Ladislas the First, son of Bela, King of Hungary, was born in 1041. By the pertinacious importunity of the people he was compelled, much against his own inclination, to ascend the throne, in 1080.

        He restored the good laws and discipline which St. Stephen had established, and which seem to have been obliterated by the confusion of the times. Chastity, meekness, gravity, charity, and piety were from his infancy the distinguishing parts of his character; avarice and ambition were his sovereign aversion, so perfectly had the maxims of the Gospel extinguished in him all propensity to those base passions.

His life in the palace was most austere; he was frugal and abstemious, but most liberal to the Church and the poor. Vanity, pleasure, or idle amusements had no share in his actions or time, because all his moments were consecrated to the exercises of religion and the duties of his station, in which he had only the divine will in view, and sought only God’s greater honor.

        He watched over a strict and impartial administration of justice, was generous and merciful to his enemies, and vigorous in the defence of his country and the Church. He drove the Huns out of his territories, and vanquished the Poles, Russians, and Tartars.

He was preparing to command, as general-in-chief, the great expedition of the Christians against the Saracens for the recovery of the Holy Land, when God called him to Himself, on the 30th of July, 1095.
