The Mustard Tree

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Romans 8:18-25
Responsorial Psalm: 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6
Gospel: Luke 13:18-21

‘The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches (NRSV, Luke 13:19).’

Let us pray.

Father, it is with great rejoicing that we accept the gift of your life into our own. There is nothing that can stand in the way of your life and power. Filled with your life, healing went out from Jesus to all who met him and he was able to pass victoriously through death. The life that you share with Jesus you share with everyone who will accept it. And we have the possibility of growing in that life throughout all of eternity.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
