GENESIS 18:1-15; PSALM –LUKE 1; MATTHEW 8:5-17
In the first reading, the visitors said to Abraham “Next year your wife Sarah will have a son”. Sarah laughed when she heard this because she has passed the age of child-bearing. God does the miraculous and with him nothing is impossible. With God everything is timely; it is never too late or too early. Similarly, in the Gospel Jesus worked miracles. Beloved, what God cannot do does not exist. All we need is faith. The centurion expressed great faith and humility in Jesus Christ. Before God, faith is an irresistible fragrance; while humility attracts his favour.
LET US PRAY
Oh Lord, increase our faith and restore our wasted years; restore our wasted efforts and wealth. Give us health, strength and blessings. Remove barriers from our path so that we may serve you wholeheartedly. Amen.
