I particularly enjoy when Jesus shows his human side in the gospel. I can sense his frustration in today's gospel reading as he says, "Bring the boy here to me." If you are a mom, you know how sometimes it's just easier to do things yourself rather than take the time to teach and train the kids to do it. But Jesus doesn't forget that gospel must continue to be taught long after he is gone, and he takes the time to instruct.
One more thing: Christ's words in today's gospel give me chills. I can hear him saying them in my ear. It brings into focus all of the doubts, fears, and insecurities that cloud my faith.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help my faith to grow from a little, to that which testifies to your salvation and love every day! In your precious name I pray, Amen. St. Cajetan, pray for me.
