11th Sunday in Ordinary Time - June 17, 2012
Today’s First Reading and Gospel speak of tiny seeds and sprouts that grow and glorify God. Stewardship, like faith, begins as a seed planted in our hearts and minds. Through the grace of God, hearts are changed. It follows that a lived experience of stewardship changes the way we think and the way we live. Like a tiny seed our stewardship then grows into a way of life that magnifies our Lord.
