What is Jesus trying to teach us in the first part of the Gospel reading?
Family Prayer Time
The mustard seed is neither large nor impressive. However, it has its purpose according to God’s will. The Litany of Humility reminds us that we need not be large nor impressive to carry out God’s will for our lives. Invite one family member to lead this litany; responses are in bold.
O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being loved, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being extolled, Deliver me, Jesus.
