Pope reflects on parable of weeds and wheat [CWN]

Pope Francis reflect on the parable of the weeds and the wheat (Matthew 13:24-43) during his July 23 Sunday Angelus address (Italian text, video).


This has long been one of my favorite parables. I love what the Holy Father says about “decision and patience.” So very true.

Once, a couple of years back, I was praying over this parable and was thinking about how to work on having patience with all the weeds, etc., when it hit me (or when the Lord whispered to me) that my primary concern should be to make sure I’m among the wheat!
