“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 8:8




The Centurion said to Jesus,

“Lord, I am not worthy

to have you enter under my roof…”


– Matthew 8:8






Am I? Am I ever prepared to receive Jesus?


This man’s humble faith is still very much an example to us. .

His words, “Lord, I am not worthy…”,

we repeat at the solemn moment when we are about to receive Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.


When Jesus sees a humble and contrite heart,

and notices the smallest sign of a desire to live in accordance with His teachings and commandments,

Jesus enters ever so willingly.

. .

He is the same Jesus who carries on knocking at our door

even when we pretend not to hear Him,

or after closing the door in his face.


Jesus never gives up on us.






Lord, I am not worthy.

Forgive me, Lord; heal me, Lord.

Create in me a clean heart!
