Readings of the day

First Reading: Exodus 34, 29-35
Psalm: 98 (99),

Gospel: Mt 13, 44-46

In those days, Jesus told his disciples: “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it”.
