Sharing the Word for July 26, 2021 – Seventeenth Week in Ordinary Time – Year 1

Memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne

July 26, 2021
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Matthew 13:31-35
Audio file


The kingdom of God is God’s final embrace of all creation in himself. Jesus’ mission was to bring about that final destiny that God had for the world. But the mission did not seem to be succeeding. The beginnings of the kingdom seemed insignificant.

Today’s parables teach us that small beginnings are not the last word. The initial growth of the kingdom is small, but its final results impressive. It will be like the final stage of a great plant that starts out as a tiny seed. It will be like a loaf of bread big enough for a hundred people resulting from a tiny bit of yeast.

The kingdom of God is still growing, still alive, its energy and power still at work today.
