27th Sunday of Ordinary Time
October 2, 2022
Jesus tells the disciples that even a smidgen of faith can achieve great things.
How do we increase faith? Faith increases through decisive obedience to what is commanded.
How do we measure this kind of faith? We measure our faith by measuring our faithfulness.
The faithful disciple of Jesus is never finished serving. The faith of a disciple is never finished increasing.
