2 Timothy 1: 6-8, 13-14; Luke 17: 5-10
Jude Siciliano, OP
Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the
run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish
bulletins people take home.
From today’s Gospel reading:
Jesus said, "If you have faith
the size of a mustard seed,
you would say to this mulberry tree,
'Be uprooted and planted in
the sea,’ and it would obey you.'"
Mustard seed faith is planted in us at our baptism. It is watered and cultured
by family, friends, and the worshiping community and so it grows. Great faith is
already contained in the mustard seed. We tend to be preoccupied by size and
quantity. We presume that we need a lot of faith to tackle the important issues
in our lives and the world around us. This preoccupation can limit our
whole-hearted, response to the tasks we disciples have before us.
we ask ourselves:
Have we ever used the excuse that our faith is weak and done
nothing when we should have done something?
Have we encouraged others in their faith? How?
