10-06-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

10-06-13
(27th Sunday Ordinary Time C)
The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
The Lord replied,
“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
you would say
to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’
and it would obey you.  Lk 17:5-10

It was really quite an insult.
It kind of meant that they had a little less faith than none.
But then, who would want to move a tree into the sea anyway?
That wasn’t the point!
The point was that they were asking for something that they
really had no idea, what it was all about.
Jesus was talking about forgiveness, and how forgiveness
came out of love, and how God’s love had to be in their hearts
before they could properly forgive others.
They thought that more Faith would help them be more capable of forgiving
when in their hearts they really didn’t want to.

Faith is not more gigabytes to help us get to
heaven faster or easier.

Faith is trust
that God will spark the flame of LOVE in our hearts,
so that heaven comes to us by what we
have done with it (like forgiving)!
