A Mustard Seed


How much faith do we need? As much as possible.  But even a faith as small as a mustard seed can lead us to Christ.

Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like?
To what can I compare it?
It is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden.
When it was fully grown, it became a large bush
and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.”

Again he said, “To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God?
It is like yeast that a woman took
and mixed in with three measures of wheat flour
until the whole batch of dough was leavened.”

We all need to pray that our faith will grow each and every day.

    I will add that taking action has been so important for me in this area. Using our myParish app, I have set a reminder for noon and 3 pm to say the Angelus and the Divine Mercy chaplet. Being a woman it is easy for me to follow Mary as a path to her son. Being a Martha makes this whole process difficult. Until I remind myself throughout the day, especially when I am worrying that I “should be, need to be doing something else” that every action I take can be offered up to Christ as prayer in some way. This also helps to sort out the non-important stuff!
