10/2/22 - Faith The Size Of A Mustard Seed - Cycle C
In this Sunday’s Gospel, when the apostles ask Jesus to increase their faith, he tells them that with a tiny bit of faith they could do amazing things. He showed them a tree and told them that if they had faith as tiny as a mustard seed, they could tell the tree to move from the land into the sea and it would!
But what is faith? Faith is believing in God’s love for us, his goodness and trusting him. Faith in God is a gift he gives us so that we can believe in Him. God gives us the gift of faith but it’s up to us to use it. There are many people who don’t have a tiny bit of faith. They don’t feel God loves them, they do not feel God is looking after them and they try to do things on their own and their lives spin out of control.
We use our gift of faith when we decide to obey, trust and believe in God’s love for us. We put our faith into action when we help those in need and do not expect anything in return.
As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other these questions.
According to Jesus, how much faith is enough? What are some of the little things that each of us do for our family that make a big difference?
Family Prayer: Lord, help our family open our hearts to your love so that we grow in our faith. Amen.

October 2, 2022- 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
"Increase our faith”, is the request of the Apostles in the Gospel of today. We all could relate to that, we all would like to have the faith as great as to move the mountains, or transplant the trees by an act of faith alone. It would be nice to have the powers to do miracles, but first we need to have that great faith. Where do we get the faith? How do we start believing in someone or something?
We start believing in something by making an experience of it. We trust that something works out in a certain way on the basis of a spiritual or material experience. We know that our car is working well, and that we can depend on it for transportation. But, when we go to the City, we may prefer to take the train, because we had an experiences of: bad traffic, lack of parking spots, overcharging for the parking, parking tickets, traffic violations for taking wrong turn in wrong place etc. With all that, we are probably more likely to take the train and trust, that this is much more peaceful solution for visiting the City. It is in those experiences, that we trust or distrust ourselves or others, or the circumstances of life.
10/2/22 - VIGESIMO SEPTIMO DOMINGO DE TIEMPO ORDINARIO
Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,
“Auméntanos la fe”, es el pedido de los Apóstoles en el Evangelio de hoy. Todos podemos identificarnos con eso, a todos nos gustaría tener una fe tan grande como para mover montañas o trasplantar arboles solo con un acto de fe. Sería bueno tener los poderes para hacer milagros, pero primero necesitamos tener esa gran fe. ¿De dónde sacamos la fe? ¿Cómo empezamos a creer en alguien o en algo?
Empezamos a creer en algo haciendo de ello una experiencia. Confiamos en que algo funciona de cierta manera sobre la base de una experiencia espiritual o material. Sabemos que nuestro automóvil está funcionando bien y que podemos depender de el para el transporte. Pero, cuando vamos a la cuidad, es posible que prefiramos tomar el tren, porque hemos tenido experiencias de: multas de estacionamiento, infracciones de tránsito por tomar el giro equivocado en el lugar equivocado, etc. Con todo eso, probablemente sea más probable que tomemos el tren y confiemos en que esta es una solución mucho más pacifica para visitar la cuidad. Es en esas experiencias, que confiamos o desconfiamos de nosotros mismo o de los demás, o de la circunstancia de la vida.
