FAITH BOOK

11th SUNDAY  (B)   June 13, 2021

Job: 38: 1-4, 8-11: Psalm 107; 2 Cor. 5: 14-17; Mark 4: 35-41

by 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:

“This is how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and through it all the seed would sprout and grow.”

Reflection:

In the parable the seed grows by itself. Jesus is reminding us of something we can forget in our daily efforts to do and accomplish good. God has not left us on our own, but it present, active and supportive in our efforts. Yes, we will work as hard as we can with all our heart, education and skills. And, we will also pray for trust in the God who guides and works with us daily.

So we ask ourselves:          

  • What difficult tasks preoccupy and worry us?
  • How do we experience God working alongside us in our struggles?
