Weekly Devotion – July 24th

A parable is a story, an indirect way of revealing meaning and truth. Jesus speaks to His people, and to us in turn, through parables so that we might more easily grasp His message about the role of God in our lives. One of the most beloved of all parables is told in the Gospel this week about the mustard seed—the smallest seed grows into the fullest, largest bush. May the many small prayers you offer each day be fruitful for your journey in faith.

We pray together: St. Jude, may my simple prayers to you help me to grow in faith, and may they always land on the fertile soil of your hope.
