Am I Trustworthy?

Jesus offers lessons on trust in today’s gospel. He invites us to reflect on our relationships with others…in situations when mutual trust is strong, as well as times when that trust was somehow broken. This then leads  to Jesus’ comments on the challenge of the “divided heart” — trying to serving two masters with competing values.

What life lessons on trust did you learn growing up? How have these lessons stayed with you today? Remember a time when trust was broken within your family or with a good friend. What did it take to restore that trust? And what personal and family experience do you have of living with a divided heart?

St. Ignatius’s First Principle and Foundation says “The goal of our life is to live with God forever. God, who loves us, gave us life. Our own response of love allows God's life to flow into us without limit.” One of the ways in which we respond to the love God has given us is through prayer, not only personal prayer but community prayer as well. The Pastoral Ministry Center invites members of our Strake Jesuit Community to share their prayers with us: their concerns, joys, thanksgivings, so that we may walk with them in all these times of their lives.
