Monday of the First Week of Advent, 28 Nov 2011

Click here to download and listen to this homily (9 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Today we hear the Centurion's act of faith when he says to Jesus, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed." Jesus notes, "Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith." May our faith be as strong as this Centurion's when we come forward to receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus in the Eucharist. Come Lord Jesus.

Readings: Isaiah 2:1-5; Psalm 122; Matthew 8:5-11
