Monday of the Twenty-Fourth Week in Ordinary time

Heavenly Father, help us to keep our priorities right, our life holy, and our heart open to your will rather than being blinded with our own self-seeking. In Infant Jesus' precious name we pray. Amen.
Mark 8:36: What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his very soul?
  Today's Readings ... (September 12, 2011)
Monday of the Twenty-Fourth Week in Ordinary time
First Reading: 1 Timothy 2:1-8
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 28:2, 7,8-9
Gospel: Luke 7:1-10

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 7:1-10)
Today’s Gospel we see the centurion who approached Jesus was not only brave, but faith-filled as well. He risked the mock of his Roman companions by looking for help from a Jewish priest from Galilee, as well as ridicule from the Jews who reviled Roman occupation of their land. However, this centurion comes up to Jesus with confidence and humbleness. The centurion regarded himself as undeserving to receive the Lord into his house: "humbleness was the door by which the Lord entered to take full possession of one whom he already obsessed." The centurion was an unusual man since he loved his slave. In the Roman world slaves were treated like animals somewhat than people. The centurion was too an astonishing man of faith. He believed that Jesus had the power to cure his beloved slave. Jesus commends him for his faith and right away grants him his request. Are we willing to undergo ridicule in the practice of our faith? And when we need help, do we approach the Lord Jesus with eager faith?
