TODAY’S WORD…

.

The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!’

.

– Luke 17:5 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

The apostles open their hearts and minds to our Lord in all simplicity.

They know their faith is often not great enough to take in things they see and hear.

.

We too are in the same situation as those first followers of Christ.

Our faith falters when we are faced with life’s difficulties

and with events that we have to learn to understand from a supernatural point of view.

.

If we live with our eyes fixed on God

then we need fear nothing:

“Faith, if it is strong, protects the whole house.” (St. Ambrose)

It protects our life.

With faith, nothing is impossible.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Christ lays down one condition: we must live by faith;

then we will be able to move mountains.

And so many things need moving

…in the world, but, first of all in our hearts.”

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Have pity on me, Lord, and increase my faith!
