Readings of the day

First Reading: Rom 8: 18-25
Psalm: 125 (126): 1-2ab.2cd-3.4-5.6

Gospel: Lk 13: 18-21

In those days, Jesus said: “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what should I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.” 

And again he said, “To what should I compare the kingdom of God? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.”
