27th in Ordinary Time

Reflection on Luke 17.5-6

A grain of mustard seed

Hold a mustard seed in your hand Imagine in this seed is all the faith you have ever known, in this tiny seed is every prayer you have ever said, every hopeful longing of your heart. It seems such a small thing.

In this tiny seed is every conversation you have had about God, about the meaning of your life and the life of every other person on earth. It seems such a tiny thing.

In this tiny seed is every sunset you have admired, every time you have been moved by music or art, every book you have read. It seems such an insignificant thing.
