27 Sunday in Ordinary Time ‘c’
“The apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith." When you pray, do you ask the Lord to give you stronger faith, to increase it? I must admit that when I pray, I ask for many things, like health, blessings, protection for me and my friends and family. I ask for peace and good weather, but not very often do I ask for a stronger faith. This request of the apostles in the gospel reading today reminds us how important it is to have a strong faith and how necessary it is to ask God to increase that faith. Why? Because only when we have a strong faith, can we face all the challenges and difficulties of this world. Only when we have faith, will we strongly remain with Jesus, knowing that all in this world will eventually pass, and that there is much more to come. Lord, increase our faith.
