Below is Monday’s Mass Gospel Reading. To me it reflects how the Gospel, 2000 years ago, started out tiny, being taught to 12 men who gave their lives to spread the message. It grew and grew, and look at it now! The Name of Christ is known throughout the whole world! Here is commentary on this passage litteralchristianlibrary.wetpaint.com/page/July+28th
**31 Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field;
32 it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches."
33 He told them another parable. "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened."
34 All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable.
35 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.” **
