SIXTEENTH SUNDAY - Year A
Today’s Gospel passage [Matt 13:24-43] is the second in the line of three Sundays where we hear from the Kingdom parables in Matthew’s Gospel. Last week we heard the parable of the sower [13:1-23] ~ concerning our reception of God’s Word and its bearing fruit in our lives and ministry. Next Sunday (17th Sunday) we hear of the Kingdom of Heaven described as finding a great treasure or a pearl of immense value.
