  • JUNE 10, 2018 TENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME FromthePastorsDesk Sunday XI of Ordinary Time and Feast of the Fathers. Following Pentecost, we had 4 very important Solemnities of our faith and Catholic tradition: SS. Trinity, Corpus Christi, Sacred Heart and last Sunday, the Anniversary of the Dedication and Consecration of our House of Prayer, Mount Carmel Church. It was a moment of grace that helped us to strengthen our bonds of faith and fraternity as people of God. Many thanks to those who were part of the celebrations and especially the members of the Committee of the Jubilees (50th and 125th).

    On this Father's Day the Church invites us to reflect on the teaching of Jesus and the Kingdom of God. Reading the Gospels, we see immediately that the theme of the "Kingdom of God" is fundamental in the preaching of Jesus. Jesus uses all the languages, including the one of the parables, so that the listener understands the arrival of the Kingdom and its action in our life. The parables with the use of images and examples of daily life enable us to participate more effectively in our daily reality. Jesus wanted his followers to understand the essentials of his preaching and his mission. That's why He is concerned for their future. He wonders: Will they forget the Kingdom of God or keep their trust in the Father? The most important thing is that they should never forget their mission and how they have to carry it out. So, from the experience of the farmers of Galilee, Jesus with some parables encourages them to always work with realism, with patience and with great confidence. The first thing they need to know is that their task is to sow, not harvest. They will not live pending results. They do not have to wor-ry about efficacy or immediate success. His focus will be on sowing the Gospel well. The disciples of Jesus must be sowers. Nothing else. Christians must regain in the Church the humble gesture of the sower. Forget the logic of the harvester, who always comes to reap fruit, and enter the patient logic of sowing a better future. This gospel points out that we have to sow small seeds. Jesus does not talk about big things. The Kingdom of God is something very humble and modest in its origins. Something that can happen as unnoticed as the smallest seed, but that is called to grow and bear fruit unexpectedly. Maybe we need to learn again to appreciate small things and small gestures. We are called to live putting a little dignity in every corner of our little world. It can be enough: a friendly gesture to those who live in bewilderment, a welcoming smile to those who are alone or migrant, a sign of closeness to those who find themselves to despair, bring a ray of little joy in a burdened heart ... they are not big things, but they transform hearts. According to Jesus, it is like planting something as small and insignificant as "a grain of mustard seed" that germinates secretly in the hearts of people. What we need is to look for new ways with the humility and trust of Jesus. They are small seeds of the Kingdom of God that we can all sow around us to transform a complicated and sad society, that has often forgotten the charm of small, simple, good things and elevate them to an experience of love, fraternity and hope.
