Mt 13:31-35 Jesus proposed a parable to the crowds. “The Kingdom of heaven is like a MUSTARD SEED that a person took and sowed in a field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches.”

Dcn Donald Cox wrote, "While we remain rooted in the things of our earthly experiences, the mystery and miracle of God’s will is what produces the results, not us or our abilities. The challenge for us is to always see the extraordinary in the ordinary. We may plant the seeds, but only God can make them grow. Simply put, we are to live our lives where we are planted, doing our best to fulfill the will of our Heavenly Father, trusting in the fact that He will do the rest."

- Extraordinary in the ordinary - Grow where we are planted - Trust God to do the rest

Our prayer life begins with a little seed - a little bit of time - a little desire - a little understanding Then God does the Extraordinary with our ordinary.

Our prayer life must grow where it is planted - each of our experiences are different - each of our relationships is unique - each of us are exactly where we are supposed to be Then God can help us to grow into the largest of plants.

Our prayer life depends on us trusting that God will do the rest - if we make the time to be with Him every day - if we meet Him face-to-face in Adoration - if we participate in His Sacraments Then God will do the rest.

St. Martha, pray for us. "Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world."(John 11:25-27)
