First Monday of Advent

When [Jesus] entered Capernaum, a centurion approached him and appealed to him, saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully." (Matthew 8:5-6)

This is today's reading that brings us on the spiritual journey to Jesus. How great that Centurion's faith was long ago, to approach Our Lord unafraid, seeking healing for his servant. To be granted healing from a distance for someone who serves his Master. Can we do that today amid so much distress , disaster? I would say yes, it's very possible to approach Our Lord, after all that is what he seeks of us. To come to him unafraid with faith and trust in him. I believe there are many who bring up their families to have a strong faith, and they in turn bring their faith to others, to be their light. To also bring healing in Jesus' name to others.
