The meeting of Christ and the centurion.
There is widespread opinion among our patriots that the issues of faith concern exclusively the Church’s officers. And we all of course understand that this can not be right.
Because in our time, where the majority of the population knows how to read and write, speaks foreign languages, knows how to handle specialized technical tools even for personal use, knows how to communicate with millions of foreigners and acquaintances around the world, the view that the everyday person is not obliged to address the issues of faith and the life of faith, it is an out-of-season and out-of-reason view.
The layman, that is, the non-clerical man, is not excluded. On the contrary, normal, everyday people are preferable, judging by the fact that Christ Himself did not choose any religious person of his time as a student of faith, as a student of the new Law he has brought and applied to mankind.
On the contrary, for this new kind of relationship with God, Christ chose everyday people, professional people, wives, with the only criterion being their spiritual pursuits, with the only criterion being their craving to come closer to God.
And this must be a matter of concern to us. So do not hesitate to make the decision and start looking for your rights in matters of faith. This is because faith is the tool that transforms our lives and our everyday life, regardless of our education or our social and economic situation.
