Reflection from Fr. Taylor: October 2, 2016, 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The power of faith. Increase on faith. Today’s readings tell us quite a bit about the Power of Faith.
For centuries the prophets had been proclaiming God’s justice. The prophet answered “Justice will triumph in God’s good time. It will surely come and it will not be late”. Further in the bible Jesus says that faith is the most powerful weapon we have in this world.
In the gospel, Jesus talks about faith moving mountains. Faith can carry us a long way even if we have given up of hope. Sometimes what seems impossible becomes possible if we approach it with faith.
If we approach something saying that it can not be done, we know for a fact that it won’t. But if we approach it saying that it can be done we might fail, but we will try. That is the power of faith. That is why faith is something we have to work at all the times. Just as if we are injured or suffering, we must go through the painful therapy in order to get the acquired results.
Faith is the beginning of making things happen. We have to put our good works and prayer in action, and God will do the rest.
