11th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (B) June 17, 2018

Ezekiel 17: 22-24; Psalm 92; 2 Corinthians 5: 6-10; Mark 4: 26-34

Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.


From today’s Gospel reading:


[Jesus said: "The kingdom of God is like...]

... A mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground

Is the smallest of all seeds on the earth.

But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants...."




We call to mind people who planted seeds in our lives that had surprising results. They might have been our teachers who got us excited about a subject or vocation, which lasted and grew throughout our lives. They are our own parables of the mustard seed, a small planting, a few words or gestures, that have produced much fruit.


So, we ask ourselves:


  • Who are the "mustard seed people" who have shaped our lives by their words and actions?

  • Are they still available to thank and tell them how important they were for us?
