Parable of mustard seed and yeast.
Reading 3, 1Cor 11:31-34 : Wait for one other
|31 ||But if we judged ourselves truly, we should not be judged. |
|32 ||But when we are judged by the Lord, we are chastened so that we may not be condemned along with the world. |
|33 ||So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another -- |
|34 ||if any one is hungry, let him eat at home -- lest you come together to be condemned. About the other things I will give directions when I come. |
Gospel, Mt 13:31-35 : Parable of mustard seed and yeast.
|31 ||Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field; |
|32 ||it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches." |
|33 ||He told them another parable. "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened." |
|34 ||All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable. |
|35 ||This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world." |
