Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face. — Psalm 24:(see 6)
Mass reading: Titus 1:1-9 / Luke 17:1-6
“Lord, increase our faith.” If the Apostles who saw Jesus perform miracles need Him to increase their faith, it’s a sure bet I need Him to increase mine. In today’s Gospel, Jesus says that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed we could tell a tree to uproot itself and it would obey. That kind of faith seems impossible, even as I trust that what Jesus says really is true.
Real faith requires childlike trust. Absolute trust. When my children cry out in the darkness, they know I’m there even though they can’t see me. They don’t doubt that I’ll respond. They know. Do we know? When we cry out in the darkness to God, do we trust with every fiber of our being that He is there?
Prayer: Father, I believe. Increase my faith.
