For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, even though today's reading is short and simple, it packs a powerful punch, much like yeast always does. A little bit of yeast to a lump of dough packs quite a transformation. The example of yeast (leaven) is powerful agent of change to bread. When heat is added, bread begins to change and rise. Just as it is when heat or a challenge is added to our lives, You sprinkle Yourself on us and we begin to rise to the occasion. I will never look at a challenge the same way, knowing that a bit of fire underneath my seat is what needed to occur in order to make me rise. Thank You so much for such a simple and quick message.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
18 He said therefore, "What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it?
19 It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches."
20 And again He said, "To what shall I compare the kingdom of God?
21 It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened."

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
