(Gospel) I love the attitude of the centurion.
He doesn’t ask for anything.
Like the child carrying a truck who walks into the living room with sand-covered feet and simply says: “Dad, Christina unplugged the swimming pool, and the back yard is flooding.”
He asks for nothing, but knows that dad knows best, and will take care of it.
This is called Faith, and this is what shocked Jesus: That someone could trust that he would take care of it, even from a distance, and even after little brother arrives to say that ALL the water is now gone out of the pool.
Because faith is believing that Jesus could, and still can, work miracles. Even when all seems lost.
