Friday in the Third Week of Ordinary Time
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence; it will have great recompense. You need endurance to do the will of God and receive what he promised. (Hebrews 10:35-36)
Lord Jesus, Brightness of Eternal Light, we have come to live in a "disposable" world, that is, we throw away much because we are confident we can get a new one, and expect the new one to be a better one.
Your gift of faith to us is not disposable; our confidence is not in being given a new or better faith, but faith like the mustard seed, which springs up and becomes the largest of plants. Reveal to this little one the mystery of Your Kingdom, to aid me to need not to know how it grows, but confidence in You to let it grow as it is, and will be, and always was.
