…would sleep and rise night and day

January 29, 2016 6:00 am

“This is how it is with the Kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how.” (MK 4: 26-27)

“The Kingdom of God” grows “night and day” when we “sleep and rise.” We do not know how it works. The same is with God’s word in us. We will see, at some time in the future, the beauty of Our Lord’s work. “The seed will sprout and grow,” quietly yet powerfully, without our intervention, but with our loving cooperation, being gentle, respectful and givers of selves.

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