Gospel Reading: Mark 9:14-29

posted Feb 20, 2011, 2:21 PM by Fabian MANUKIALONA
Since the disciples do not have a firm faith they lack the power of Jesus and so they cannot exorcise or heal as Jesus does. The is sadness and disappointment in Jesus words. For how will this situation continue? This situation allows us to see the personality of Jesus. The humanity of Jesus in his words. He is very much a human being like anyone of us, God becoming truly man for our salvation. Jesus tells us today that everything or anything is possible for one who believes. How many miracles in we have missed out in our lives because of our lack of faith? How many time have we lost our war against the powers of evil just because we have not been aware of the power of Jesus at work in us?
Lord, increase our faith!
