When is fully grown, it became a large bush

Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? To what can I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.” (LK 13: 18-19) 

We are growing, we are moving to perfection, which is quite simply—to love the best way. If today we can’t be totally unconditional in our relationship, when we lose our gentleness or respect and we are not a free and creative and joyful gift of self, this is only an indication that we are in progress, that we are still growing. When we are “fully grown,” we become like “a large bush” and all kinds of “the birds of the sky” can dwell in our branches. Between today and “fully grown,” there is just one simple action: put as much love as you can into all of your actions. 

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