Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – Potential: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to His disciples, “Were your faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to the mulberry tree, ‘be uprooted and be planted in the sea;’ it would obey you.’” Ponder on, “The gift of faith in God has a divine power to do what is humanly impossible to Glorify God. Have you experienced this?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Obstacles are sure to come, but alas for the one who provides them! It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone put round his neck than that he should lead astray a single one of these little ones. Watch yourselves! ‘If your brother does something wrong, reprove him and, if he is sorry, forgive him. And if he wrongs you seven times a day and seven times comes back to you and says, “I am sorry,” you must forgive him.’
The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith.’ The Lord replied, ‘Were your faith the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea,” and it would obey you.
