Jesus’ follows ask Him how to grow their faith in today’s Gospel. Jesus tells them that if they have faith the size of the smallest seed, God will help it grow so big that we can do seemingly impossible things, like move great trees into the sea. If we have a little faith and take care of it through prayer or helping others, God will help it grow to let us do great things. How strong would you say your faith is at this point in your life? What is one way you could help God grow your faith?
Our second reading today talks about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was sent to us to help us live out the Christian life. The Holy Spirit is sometimes symbolized by a flame, which represents the small flame of faith that with care will become strong and light the way for others. The work of the Holy Spirit can be seen when we are able to share the goodness of God with others. Name one time you have felt the Holy Spirit at work in your life.
As Catholics we belong to a big family which we call the Church. We come together with Christ united in our hearts, mind and souls thanks to our shared Baptism. We are connected with each other and with Christ in a very special way. Our parish is our local group of members of the Church, and we want to be sure all are welcomed in our community. Pretend a friend of yours said they were interested in coming to Mass at our parish. What is something you could say to them to make them feel welcome?
Parent Question of the Week
The end of our Gospel speaks of the relationship between a master and servant. We are called to serve God and our neighbors through small acts of service each and every day. What is one way you serve your family or community?
