Why me?
When we are tested with trials we ask God, Why me? And we fail to count the innumerable blessings that we have received. Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood received during a heart surgery in 1983. From the world over, he received letters from his fans, one of whom wrote: “Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?”. To this Arthur Ashe replied: “The world over 50,000,000 children start playing tennis, 5,000,000 learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach the Wimbledon, 4 to semi-finals, 2 to finals. When I was the one holding the cup, I never asked God “Why me?” And today in pain, I do not ask God “Why me?”

In the book, The Fellowship of the Ring, the first book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Lady Galadriel, a powerful elven queen, says to Frodo, the hobbit, a man half the size of everyone else, “The smallest person can change the course of history.” As Jesus teaches us today in the Gospel, all it takes is the smallest act of faith for the world to be changed. The Church Fathers interpreted the “mustard seed” and the “yeast” as representing the preaching of the Gospel. Thus, a simple Word can change the world. Think about it: A ragtag group of men (the Apostles), with no education, who hailed from Galilee, changed the world. They did this not because of anything they had done on their own, but because they received the Word of God from Jesus Christ
