Seventeenth Monday of Ordinary Time

“I WILL OPEN MY MOUTH IN PARABLES.”     (Matthew 13, 31-35)



Mustard seed and yeast…                                                               

Such commonplace things,                                                            

Easily overlooked…taken for granted.

To these He compares the Kindom of Heaven.

Not with trumpet blast,

Nor majestic fanfare,

Spreads the Divine Reality.

In humility and littleness,

Does the Seed grow,

TheYeast leaven.

The Word rings out

To all the world,                                                         

Through us,                                                                                                 

Fragile vessels of clay

Holding a Treasure

Beyond our ken. 

Truths hidden

from the foundation

of the world,

Now revealed

To listening hearts!
