The 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

This week we celebrate the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time.  The Readings emphasize Christian Faith.  Paul urges Timothy to “stir into flame” the gifts that were received from God.  In Luke’s Gospel the Apostles are asking Jesus to “increase our faith.”  How do we demonstrate faith?  The concept of our faith being as the size of a mustard seed yet powerful enough to uproot a mulberry tree should stick in our mind this week.            If we utilize the “flame” of faith within us, nurture it,  and strive to share that flame with others we can achieve the impossible.  To believe is a gift in itself.  Thanks to all for the prayers and cards during my recent back surgery – I took a week off to recover & have returned!  Thanks to all who helped while I was gone – you are appreciated!
