The Lord has remembered his mercy.-- Luke 1:(see 54)
Mass readings: Genesis 18:1-15 / Matthew 8:5-17
Consider something about the readings for both yesterday and today. In the first readings, we see Abraham, the man of great faith who became the father of the covenant, and his wife Sarah, both unwilling to accept God's bold promises. Sadly, they just laugh at God's plans. But in the Gospels, we see two relatively minor characters -- an outcast leper and a Roman centurion -- presenting bold requests to Jesus and demonstrating great faith in Him.
Sure, this tells us something about God, but it also tells us something about the people God is willing to work with. Some people may have a prominent place in God's plan for the world or the Church but God is willing to step into each of our lives in a prominent and beautiful way!
Prayer: Jesus, inspired by the centurion and the leper, today I ask . . . Your will be done.
