"If you start thinking that only your biggest and shiniest moments count, you’re setting yourself up to feel like a failure most of the time." - Chris Hadfield

A question: do you feel like your faith is strong enough? I’d hazard a guess that for many of us the answer is no. Faith can be a fragile thing. It changes throughout our lives. It is tested and it wanes and wobbles at times, particularly when we go through periods of pain or loss.

A lot of the time we feel like we could be doing better—we should be spending more time in prayer, meditating on the Scriptures, making more effort to put the Gospel in to action in our families and in our communities. No matter what stage we’re at in our faith journey, there is room for improvement; God always wants to draw us closer to him.

There is a great image of hope in today’s Gospel. The mustard seed brings to mind something that is tiny, weak and insignificant. But Jesus says that if our faith is even the size of a mustard seed, we are capable of great things! God grows strength out of weak-ness. Once we have a small spark of faith in our hearts, it can grow into something strong. If we nourish it, turn to God more often, make more space for him in our daily routine, wonderful things will follow.

Find that spark, and let it shine.

- Tríona Doherty
