TODAY'S GOSPEL: JUNE 25: Matthew 8: 5- 17

Matthew 8: 5 - 17
5As he entered Caper'na-um, a centurion came forward to him, beseeching him
6and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, in terrible distress."
7And he said to him, "I will come and heal him."
8But the centurion answered him, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant will be healed.
9For I am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, `Go,' and he goes, and to another, `Come,' and he comes, and to my slave, `Do this,' and he does it."
10When Jesus heard him, he marveled, and said to those who followed him, "Truly, I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.
11I tell you, many will come from east and west and sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven,
12while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth."
13And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; be it done for you as you have believed." And the servant was healed at that very moment.
14And when Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever;
15he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served him.
16That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick.
17This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, "He took our infirmities and bore our diseases."
