Thought for of the Day – 27 July – ‘The final victory of good..’

Thought for of the Day – 27 July – Saturday of the Sixteenth week in Ordinary Time, Year C, Gospel: 13:24-30

“The kingdom of heaven may be compared, to a man who sowed good seed in his field but, while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away.   So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.   And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?   How then has it weeds?’”… Matthew 13:24-27

The field owner’s attitude is that of hope, grounded in the certainty, that evil does not have the first nor the last word.

And it is thanks to this patient hope of God, that the same weed, which is the malicious heart with so many sins, in the end can become good grain.

But be careful – evangelical patience is not indifference to evil, one must not confuse good and evil!

In facing weeds in the world, the Lord’s disciple is called to imitate the patience of God, to nourish hope, with the support of indestructible trust, in the final victory of good, that is, of God.

Pope Francis
