Have mercy on us, God, in your kindness
Today we are called to remember the words that we hear in the Scriptures, so that we may remember to sow the seeds of faith in our hearts and provide them the best condition possible for our faith to grow and blossom.
In the Gospel passage, we hear the Lord speaking to the people using a parable of a sower and mustard seed. Through parables, the Lord wants to explain clearly in the context of what the people understood, how building the kingdom of God requires effort and hard work, and our faith is not one that can just be easily lived in idleness and passive attitude. Instead, as Christians we are called to live our lives with vigour and great zeal, spending time and effort in following the Lord in all of our actions and deeds. This means each and every one of us has to be active in nurturing our faith, doing whatever we can in every small and little thing in life, in following the teachings of the Lord, obeying His will and Law, living in the way that His commandments had shown us, and doing whatever we can to be exemplary in our contributions as Christians, in being role models for one another.
Today we celebrate the feast of a truly great saint, whose renown throughout all Christendom remains even to this very day. St. Thomas Aquinas was one of the greatest minds of the Church, a most faithful and ardent servant of the Lord dedicated to the glory of God. He spent many years in immersing himself in his works, gaining much insight over various areas of Christian philosophy and theology, while learning the great experiences from the past philosophers in improving his own understanding of the Divine.
May God bless our every endeavour and good works, and may He bless us always with His truth and love, that we may always walk faithfully in the path of His servants, especially that of St. Thomas Aquinas.
