It is a good thing that God does not spend time killing the weeds – evil- in His Kingdom. He chooses to nourish the wheat instead. That is, He considers all of us to be wheat - good, until we turn into weeds - evil.
The topic of discipleship is discussed by Jesus in the form of parables for a second consecutive Sunday. In doing so, Jesus gives His disciples hope so that they and we might imitate His kindness and justice (Wis. 12:19). The long form of the Gospel contains three parables. As disciples, we are constantly assessing our progress. We look for the “Blessed Assurance” that our conduct is acceptable to God. In the parables, Jesus gives us that “Blessed Assurance.” He assures that God’s wisdom and mercy allows for justice, even though evil exists alongside of good.

From Roots to Reality!

Reality can be defined as something that must be dealt with in everyday life. A parable is a story that compares a Christian truth with events in everyday life. A parable is grounded in the basic or root experience of the listener, connects with the ritual of everyday life and shows the relationship between the Christian truth and the reality of human activity. This is why Jesus used parables to teach (vv. 10-17) about His ministry on earth.

As Christians, our goal is to nourish our Christian roots with the rituals of the sacraments, so that we can have a personal relationship with God to apply to the reality of daily life. Our roots are the foundation of our faith. The rituals are the sacraments that are designed to develop our relationship with God that we apply to everyday life.

Greetings to you Ms. Laurelee,

Thank you so much for this picture and please my appreciation to you and these wonderful children of God for such a noble task which enables us to make small yet significant differences in the lives of some people down here in Uganda. God's blessing be upon you all.

Yours in Christ,

Hi Ms Laurelee,

I pray and hope all is well with you and the bake for sale team. I am very grateful to you and your entire team for the generous and wonderful job well done. I am truly humbled for your love and generosity towards my work and those I serve. I received the money and I used it generously in helping some three kids pay their tuition. I helped Gloria, John Baptist and Peter. They send their appreciation. I was also able to do some house shopping for my new place in the parish where I am. Thank You Ms Laurelee and the Little Ones. God bless you all.

With Love and Gratitude,

Daniel Ochom, Fr.
