Daily Gospel Reading – Matthew 8:5-11

The Healing of a Centurion’s Servant

5 And when Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion[a] came to Him, entreating Him, 6 and rh-jesusandcenturiansaying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home, sick with paralysis, terribly tormented.”

7 Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But speak the word only, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this man, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

10 When Jesus heard it, He was amazed and said to those who followed, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say to you that many will come from the east and west and will dine with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
