07-31-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 31, 2017
(St. Ignatius of Loyola, Priest)
Jesus proposed a parable to the crowds.  “The Kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field.  It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the ‘birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches.'”   Mt_13:31-35

Somewhere in the past, beloved, someone planted a seed in our hearts.  It may have been sitting there infertile for years or it may have immediately begun growing.  But whenever it started, there developed a thirst in us to feed it.  And we fed it by going to Mass.  We fed it by reading the Bible.  We fed it in many and varied ways that brought us closer to God and closer in relationship with Jesus and one another.

THAT is the Kingdom of heaven growing within us, just like the mustard seed that Jesus spoke of today.  If you feel like the mustard bush within you is wilting or thirsty, beloved, maybe it’s time to feed it again.  Come into community with like-minded believers and watch it grow again!  And there you will find that Kingdom that your soul is so searching for!

The Kingdom of God’s love!

And then let’s see if we can plant some seeds of our own for God!
