JULY 6 & 7: 4TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

healing-of-the-centurions-servant  JULY 6: VIGIL DIVINE LITURGY (SN) – 4:00 PM; JULY 7: DIVINE LITURGY (SCM)- 10:00 AM.

This Sunday’s gospel readings for Divine Liturgy – The Gospel of Matthew 8:5-13, addresses The Faith of the Centurion who asked Jesus, while he was in Capernaum, to heal his servant and which Jesus marveled at the Centurion’s faith. Likewise, Jesus is calling each of us to step out of our comfort zone and live the kind of life that He is asking us to live. This is not an easy life. It was not easy for the Centurion in today’s Gospel to come forward and ask Jesus for help but he did it because he had such great faith that he knew that Jesus would grant his request. We are being asked to live an extraordinary life for Jesus. To live for someone other than ourselves. To place our life in His hands and trust in Him that all will be okay. Are you willing, today, to take that step that is necessary to live your faith and not just practice it?
