Week of the Sunday after Epiphany
I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
– Luke 7:9; Matthew 8:10
After a long sermon tour through Galilee, Jesus, one day, returned to His own city, Capernaum. And the centurion, an army officer commanding the Roman garrison there, sent the elders of the Jews to Him, beseeching Him and saying through them: “Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.” And Jesus saith: “I will come and heal him,” and went toward the centurion’s house.
