Readings for today’s Mass
To teach about the kingdom, Jesus uses images that we can relate to, something we can taste and see, that we can touch. The kingdom is wherever we find ourself anytime. It must be real for us at the present time, not something we anticipate, plan for and wait to happer. Using words of Paul, the body of Christ is the kingdom. Behold, it is among you!
We are both the yeast and the dough. We are the seed and the soil. Just as it is on us to touch lives around us, so are we open to growth from the touch of others. That's how yeast does its thing. i will argue Jesus' words and suggest the Kingdom of God can indeed be observed. It can be seen in the way we relate to others in light of the common good. It is evident in how we respond to Matthew 25. The kingdom is about fulfilling the greatest and the first commandment, and the second which is like it - Love your neighbor as yourself.
This is the kingdom of God. We can chose to be part of it or not.
How far does the yeast of your life spread thru the kingdom to inspire and enliven other parts of the kingdom? How do your roots and branches impact other members of the kingdom? Would others say of you, Behold the kingdom is among you?
