Heavenly Father, there is no way we can adequately thank you for sacrificing so much to forgive us. So this day, we pledge to be more like you: to share more of your kindness and grace with those who have wronged us. Today, we ask you to help us release our bitterness toward global terrorism and we ask you to bless them all who are behind this activities, with your kindness and grace. That they may realize Your love among every brethren and consider all are brothers and sisters of Jesus. By the power of Infant Jesus' example we ask this. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 13:24-43)
The representation Jesus uses today’s Gospel is a common for everyday example of planting, harvesting, and sorting the good fruit from the awful. The small mustard seed plainly grew to be a tree which attracted many birds because they loved the little black mustard seed it shaped. God's kingdom works in a same fashion. It starts from the least beginnings in the hearts of men and women who are accessing to God's word. And it works unseen and causes a change from within. Leaven is another influential agent of change. A lump of dough left to it remains just what it is, a lump of dough. But when the leaven is added to it a transformation takes place which produces rich and nutritious bread when heated the staple of life for humans. The kingdom of God creates a transformation in those who receive the new life which Jesus Christ offers. When we give way to Jesus Christ, our lives are changed by the power of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. The parable weeds can ruin and even kill a good harvest if they are not separated and destroyed at the correct time. Uprooting them very early, though, can destroy the good plants in the course. Just as nature teaches us patience, so God's patience also teaches us to guard the word he has planted in our hearts and to be careful of the destructive force of sin and evil which can destroy it. God's word brings life, but Satan seeks to obliterate the good seed which has been planted in the hearts of those who have heard God's word. God's decision is not hasty, but it does come. And in the end, God will recompense each according to what they have sown and reaped in this life. In that day God will divide the evil from the good. Do we let God's word to take deep root in your heart?

I desire mercy and not sacrifice...
