20th Sunday after Pentecost
Healing of the ruler’s son at Capharnaum. The reward of faith in our Lord.
The Gospel in Latin
IN illo témpore: Erat quidam régulus, cujus fílius infirmabátur Caphárnaum. Hic cum audísset, quia Jesus adveníret a Judæa in Galilæam, ábiit ad eum: et rogábat eum ut descénderet et sanáret fílium ejus: incipiébat enim mori. Dixit ergo Jesus ad eum: Nisi signa, et prodígia vidéritis, non créditis. Dicit ad eum régulus: Dómine, descénde priúsquam moriátur fílius meus. Dicit ei Jesus: Vade fílius tuus vivit. Crédidit homo sermóni, quem dixit ei Jesus, et ibat. Jam autem eo descendéntem, servi occurrérunt eí, et nuntiavérunt dicéntes, quia fílius ejus víveret. Interrogábat ergo horam ab eis, in qua mélius habúerit. Et dixérunt ei: Quia heri hora séptima reliquit eum febris. Cognóvit ergo pater, quia illa hora erat, in qua dixit ei Jesus: Fílius tuus vivit: et crédidit ipse, et domus ejus tota.
The Gospel in English
At that time, there was a certain ruler whose son was sick at Capharnaum. He having heard that Jesus was come from Judæa into Galilee, went to Him, and prayed Him to come down, and heal his son for he was at the point of death. Jesus therefore said to him: Unless you see signs and wonders, you believe not. The ruler saith to Him: Lord, come down before my son die. Jesus saith to him: Go on thy way, thy son liveth. The man believed the word which Jesus had said to him, and went his way. And as he was going down, his servants met him, and they brought word, saying that his son lived. He asked therefore of them the hour wherein he grew better. And they said to him: Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. The father therefore knew that it was at the same hour that Jesus said to him: Thy son liveth and himself believed, and his whole house.
