Today, we are invited to meditate on the wonders of God’s Kingdom, especially its power to grow. This marvelous gift has its roots in the love of the Lord for all mankind. The KINGDOM is God’s PROJECT and this very fact guarantees the success of this undertaking in which all human beings are invited to join as partners.

This project was launched by God’s Incarnate Son, Jesus Christ. It has in him not only the most zealous herald, but also its most perfect actualization. Because of this, he is our most inspiring model to emulate.

In this Eucharist, we will praise the Lord for the marvelous growth of the Kingdom in ourselves and around us. We will also thank Him for having made us not only witnesses of these wonders, but also His humble partners in facilitating the growth of the Kingdom and proclaiming it to others. – Word and Life
