10-29-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

10-29-13
(St. Narcissus, Bishop of Jerusalem)
St. Paul said, “For who hopes for what one sees?  But if we hope for
what we do not see, we wait with endurance.”  Rom 8:18-25

Faith takes Patient Endurance!

Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like?
To what can I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that a man took and
planted in the garden.  When it was fully grown,
it became a large bush
and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.”
  Lk 13:18-21

And that seed doesn’t grow into that huge bush overnight.
It takes years of watering and fertilizing and sunshine.  It fights
the bugs and the wind and the snow and the heat.

The Kingdom of God grows within us, beloved.
It’s the seed of life that struggles much like the tree.
And over time grows closer and closer to God,
as it overcomes the obstacles of temptation,
sickness, sorrow, disappointment
and loneliness.

Never to be lonely again, as the sunshine of Jesus
brightens every day with HOPE!
