Jesus was amazed at him

September 17, 2018 6:00 am

“When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him and, turning, said to the crowd following him, ‘I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.’ When the messengers returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.” (LK 7: 9-10)

“Jesus was amazed at him.” And in the same way, He looks at us whenever we fight for our relationship with Him, when we grow and when we say we are sorry when we go to confession. He is amazed, like parents are amazed, watching the progress of their children. He never is upset or disappointed because love is always focused on the good.

“God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
