At each Eucharist, before taking Communion, we repeat the words of the Roman centurion, individually and in community: “Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.”

Reflect, today, on your own humility and trust.  Can you pray this prayer with the same faith as the centurion?  Let him be a model for you especially every time you prepare to receive Jesus “under your roof” in Holy Communion.

Lord, I am not worthy of You.  I am especially not worthy of receiving You in Holy Communion.  Help me to humbly recognize this fact and, in that humility, help me to also recognize the fact that You desire to come to me anyway.  Jesus, I trust in You.
