Today, in Mercy, Jesus teaches us about faith with the simple parable of the mustard seed. Many of us have never seen a mustard seed — just mustard! 😀 So the short video below is helpful.

The Mustard Tree

Sometimes we feel that our faith is that small, don’t we? 

  • We have so many questions about why evil exists in the world. 
  • We wonder the classic question: Why do bad things happen to good people?
  • The religious foundation of our faith might be shaken by scandals within the Church, and the selfish hard-hearted ness of some who proclaim to be Christian.
  • Sometimes we just feel empty and disconnected from God.

Jesus tells us today to think of the tiniest seed, easily overlooked in the big garden. He says our faith is like that seed. By one small prayer, one small turning toward God, that seed will take root again in us and grow.
