Like a mustard seed

“It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.” (MK 4: 31-32) 

“It is like a mustard seed”–our daily ritual, very small, very simple (doesn’t means easy)—twenty minutes every day; good quality time, just for us, about us, to learn from each other, to love each other, to be together. “When it is sown in the ground”— our marriage, “is the smallest of all seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants.” When we protect this daily ritual, when we are faithful to our 20 minutes ritual, slowly, but consistently, we “put forth large branches,” so that our children and friends “can dwell in its shade.” 

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
