October 6, 2019: The Power of Faith
Preaching for the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time, Maryknoll Sister Sia Nyasari Temu offers a reflection on the power of faith:
"Jesus told his disciples if they had faith 'the size of a mustard seed' they could command a mulberry tree to be uprooted and moved to the sea. This is an image Jesus is using to illustrate the power of faith, no matter how small that faith is. He is aware that it is when we believe in something that we are able to realize it. Indeed, Jesus is not talking of a magic way of doing things, rather it is the role faith plays in realizing our vision, dreams, and desires."
Sister Sia Nyasari Temu entered the Maryknoll Sisters in 2003. In 2006, she was assigned to the Peace Building Team in Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya. The focus of this team’s ministry is “Conversations for Social Change,” a program designed to prototype a process to effect social change through personal transformation.
