Monday of the 32 week in ordinary time ‘b’
Jesus wants us to have a strong faith. As you recall from other gospel readings, after performing a miracle, Jesus would say to a person: your faith has saved you. When the times are challenging, it is difficult to keep strong faith. Especially when we witness so much evil and injustice in this world. We may end up asking -- Where is God? Why doesn’t God react? Jesus wants us to keep our faith strong, believing that everything will be OK and that one day all evil will be conquered. So, what should we do? We should take the example from Jesus’ Apostles who ask today for an increase of their faith. Jesus, increase our faith, they asked. It wasn’t easy for them, and it is not easy for us today. So, ask the Lord: Increase my faith!
