Father Pinto and myself we able to attend World Youth Day in Panama last week, where we highlighted the live of four great Holy Cross men: Saint Andre, Blessed Basile Moreau, Venerable Patrick Peyton, and Archbishop Marcos G. McGrath. Each of them did small things with great love, as they were gifted in Healing, Teaching, Praying, and Leading, respectively.
These gifts led these men to grow the faith in others, where their outreach stretched farther than they could have imagined. Today, Jesus compares the Kingdom of God with a mustard seed. A seed that is so small, but has the capacity to become the largest plant. Allow the Holy Spirit to help you be in tune with the Kingdom of God, where joy and peace prevail.
Do you allow the mustard seed within you to grow?
As these leaders inspired faith in so many, we pray for the strength to follow in their footsteps and plant seeds in others.
