‘if you have faith like a mustard seed’


February 26th 2017
One day Jesus reproached his disciples for their disbelief, saying, ‘If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there", and it will move.’ Those who read this verse are so struck by the enormous discrepancy in size of a mountain and a mustard seed that they go no further, and this is why they cannot interpret the parable correctly. Understanding will come from reflecting on the nature and characteristics of a mustard seed. To have faith no bigger than a mustard seed and to one day be capable of moving mountains… Yes, it is possible because once that seed is sown in our heart and soul, it will grow and expand. And when it becomes a tree, as Jesus said, all the birds of heaven will come and dwell in its branches. The birds of heaven are all the beings of light in the invisible world, and these entities do not come empty-handed. They bring with them heavenly gifts – wisdom, love, purity, peace, and strength – and it is thanks to these gifts that little by little a human being gains the power to move mountains.
