Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof;

only say the word and my servant will be healed.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8:5-11.

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.”

Commentary of the day

Blessed Guerric of Igny (c.1080-1157),

Cistercian abbot
3rd Advent Sermon, 2

“A centurion of the Roman army approached him”

Oh true Israel, be ready to go out to meet the Lord! Do not only be ready to open the door to him when he is there and knocks at your door, but even go out to meet him cheerfully and joyfully when he is still far away. And so to speak with complete trust where the day of judgment is concerned, pray with all your heart that his reign might come… May your mouth be able to sing: “My heart is steadfast, oh God, my heart is steadfast!”…  And you, Lord, come to meet me who am going out to meet you! For in spite of all my efforts, I won’t be able to rise up to your height unless you bend down and stretch out your right hand to the work of your hands. So come to meet me and see whether there is a way of iniquity in me; and if you find in me a way of iniquity that I know nothing about, take it away from me and have mercy on me; lead me by the eternal way, which is to say Christ, for he is the way on which we walk and the eternity to which we come, the immaculate way and the blessed dwelling. 

[Biblical references: Am 3:12; Lk 12:36; Lk 14:32;

Saint of the day

St. James of the Marches,

Franciscan Priest (1394-1476)

san_giacomo_della_marca_b

SAINT JAMES OF THE MARCHES OF ANCONA
Franciscan
Priest
(1394-1476)

        The small town of Montbrandon, in the Marches of Ancona, gave birth to this Saint. When young he was sent to the University of Perugia, where his progress in learning soon qualified him to be chosen preceptor to a young gentleman of Florence. Fearing that he might be ingulfed in the whirlpool of world excesses, St. James applied himself to prayer and recollection.

        When travelling near Assisium he went into the great Church of the Portiuncula to pray, and being animated by the fervor of the holy men who there served God, and by the example of their blessed founder St. Francis, he determined to petition in that very place for the habit of the Order. He began his spiritual war against the devil, the world, and the flesh, with assiduous prayer and extraordinary fasts and watchings. For forty years he never passed a day without taking the discipline.

        Being chosen Archbishop of Milan, he fled, and could not be prevailed on to accept the office. He wrought several miracles at Venice and at other places, and raised from dangerous sicknesses the Duke of Calabria and the King of Naples.

        The Saint died in the convent of the Holy Trinity of his Order, near Naples, on the 28th of November, in the year 1476, being ninety years old, seventy of which he had spent in a religious state.
