Readings for today’s Mass
In the Gospel today, Jesus exhorts us to build the kingdom or reign of God. What does that mean? He provides two homey images. The kingdom is like a mustard seed -- the tiniest seed Jesus knew. Planted and watered, the Palestinian mustard plant typically grew to 10 feet tall. Or the kingdom was like yeast in dough that causes it to rise and rise.
God's reign will come about when we do what WE can to plant the seeds of the Word in justice and peace and act as yeast to slowly, marvelously turn wheat into a wonderful bread to feed the world.
We read about the dramatic, all too often tragic, events, but we need to recall that all over the world, seeds are growing quietly and steadily and yeast is rising.
