Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus gives us a familiar and beautiful image of faith in the gospel today.  He says that faith is like a mustard seed.  This image suggests that faith, if nurtured properly, is a gift that can grow and blossom over the years.  In the second reading, from St. Paul’s second letter to Timothy, we hear these words about faith: “Do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord.” In other words, faith is a gift that is to be regularly shared with others, lived for the benefit of others, expressed without hesitation or shame so that others may profit.  Let’s really practice this faith and let it grow by living the gospel in the week ahead!
