The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Some Sayings of Jesus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Monday
In The Thirty-Second Week Of Ordinary Time

 

Luke 17: 1-6

Jesus in todays Gospel is making a few observations;

  • Sin is bound to be there

  • and though it may not be as big a mountain
  • but be as little as a mustard seed,
  • it has the potential to light passion for God in every heart, it comes in contact with.

Come let us with the apostles tell Jesus, “Lord, increase our faith…
