October 29

October 29, 2013:   Tuesday, 30th week, Ordinary Time 


    Wordle: Readings 10-29-13
  • Rom 8:18-25  Today's sufferings are nothing compared with glory to be revealed.  Creation eagerly awaits the freedom of God's children.  We groan as we wait in hope for adoption, redemption.
  • Ps 126:1b-6  "The Lord has done marvels for us."  Sow in tears; reap rejoicing.  Go forth weeping; come back rejoicing.
  • Lk 13:18-21  Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that became large bush birds dwelt in; it's like yeast mixed with flour till all dough was leavened.

    • Pope Francis homily:  Hope isn't optimism; it's Christ, expectation, gift, risky virtue, miracle of renewal creating tension directed to Christ, joy, life.  Mary hoped on Good Friday.
    • RC.net:  Kingdom works like seed, starting small (in receptive heart), transforming from within.   Kingdom transforms us like leaven dough.  Lord, fill me with your Spirit and transform me...
    • Creighton:  We plant; God gives increase.  We knead dough; God makes rise.  May I trust, be patient.
    • Universalis:  >160 Blessed Martyrs of Douai College, St. Colman MacDuagh, abbot-bishop



      • "Keyboard with dove" tie pin:  we who have the firstfruits of the Spirit groan inwardly as we await redemption.
      • "Harvest of wheat" pin:  "Those who sow in tears will reap rejoicing" (psalm); God grants the increase (gospel)
      • "Tabasco" tie with bread and seeds:  Kingdom of God is like mustard seed, yeast mixed with flour (gospel)
