Greetings on this the Tuesday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: EPH 5:21-33; PS 128:1-2, 3, 4-5; LK 13:18-21
Notes: None.

First reading
Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ. This is a great mystery, but I speak in reference to Christ and the Church.

Responsorial Psalm
Blessed are those who fear the Lord.

Alleluia Verse
Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; You have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.

Gospel Portion
The Parable of the Mustard Seed.
The Parable of the Yeast.

Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like?

Man and woman (reflects the universality of humanity most importantly).

A man plants a mustard seed growing into a large bush, a place for life.
A woman who uses yeast to leaven the bread, when baked, becoming our sustinance.

The kingdom of heaven is the joint work of the divine and humans working for one purpose and one end. It is the comingling of the divine and human.

It is the fullness of self-identity from singular to universal application: “This one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; This one shall be called ‘woman,’ for out of man this one has been taken.”

Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ.
It is the new garden.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
