FRIDAY OF THE THIRD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME MEMORIAL OF ST THOMAS AQUINAS JANUARY 28, 2022



A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mk 4:26-34


Jesus said to the crowds: “This is how it is with the Kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land yields fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the harvest has come.” He said, “To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.” With many such parables he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it. Without parables he did not speak to them, but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.


REFLECTION

“This is how it is with the Kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how.


Whether we are asked to do challenging or difficult things, our response to God should always be joy and gratitude.


Mary was invited to do great things for God and with her "Yes" she set about passing her gifts on to others with her every breath and action.


We are asked to merely plant the seeds of our faith.


By our actions we can bring the love of God to others. He will do the rest.


Children remind us about this "Yes". They learn from our example, how we correct them, how we teach them and how we treat them. The seeds of God's love are planted in their minds and hearts.


Thanking God for all He has done for us.

God Bless You.
