A SPARK OF FAITH

‘If you start thinking that only your biggest and shiniest moments count, you’re setting yourself up to feel like a failure most of the time.’  (Chris Hadfield)

A question: do you feel that your faith is strong enough? I’d hazard a guess that for many of us the answer is no. Faith can be a fragile thing. It changes throughout our lives. It is tested and it wanes and wobbles at times, particularly when we go through periods of pain or loss.

A lot of the time we feel like we could be doing better – we should be spending more time in prayer, meditating on the Scriptures, making more effort to put the Gospel into action in our families and in our communities. No matter what stage we’re at in our faith journey, there is room for improvement; God always wants to draw us closer to him.

There is a great image of hope in today’s Gospel. The mustard seed brings to mind something that is tiny, weak and insignificant. But Jesus says that if our faith is even the size of a mustard seed, we are capable of great things! God grows strength out of weakness. Once we have a small spark of faith in our hearts, it can grow into something strong. If we nourish it, turn to God more often, make more space for him in our daily routine, wonderful things will follow.

Find that spark, and let it shine!

Jane Mellett, Intercom October 2019

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Faith can move mountains… well it can certainly get us moving. Recall a time when you were full of self-doubt, skepticism about a project, or lacking trust in God. What was that like? Contrast this with times when you believed in yourself, or in the value of a project you had undertaken, or when your faith and trust in God was strong. What kind of faith have you found enriched your life?

Faith is like a mustard seed – small­. Sometimes we may be tempted to wait till our faith grows. Part of the message in the Gospel is to use the faith we have, even though it may be small. That is how we grow in belief in ourselves and in God’s presence in our lives. Does your experience back this up?

It is nice when what we do is recognized and acknowledged, but the desire for recognition leaves us vulnerable. It is not always forthcoming. It can be helpful if our main motivation in doing something is the value of the action itself. Have you experienced this?

Love is a free gift. What is given lovingly is not given because of a claim. What is your experience of the freedom of love given and received?

John Byrne osa, Intercom Octobr 2019
