Saint Gabriel Church
July 23, 2017
In the Gospel, Jesus continues to speak in parables. “The parables are like mirrors for man” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 546), calling us to examine and reflect on our relationship with God. Do we receive wholeheartedly the good seed of salvation or allow the weeds of the enemy to weaken or destroy our resolve to follow the Lord (Mt 13:24-25)? Do we permit divine grace to grow in us like a mustard seed and become the largest of plants (Mt 13:31-32)? Does our faith truly permeate and transform our lives like yeast which, mixed with wheat flour, leavens the whole batch (Mt 13:33)? These are the questions which Christ asks us today. This is the invitation which the parables extend to everyone and the necessary conditions to enter the heavenly kingdom.
