The Hidden and Buried Treasure
Gospel Reflection for Sunday July 26th
17th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Like the mustard seed, the Kingdom of God is sown within us. It is a buried and hidden treasure. It is up to us, with God’s help to find and nourish it. We are being invited to look for and dig up this treasure and bring it out into the light of our own lives and the lives of others. Here is the challenge of finding the hidden treasure; the Kingdom of God; once we find it we are called to share it with others, not keep it to ourselves
I invite you to read my gospel reflection for this Sunday.
With every blessing,
Br Michael Moore OMI
One of my favourite television programmes is the Antiques Road Show. People bring their prized and personal possessions and have experts look at them to be valued. Some are worth are lot of money.
They are, with other antiques often called ‘priceless work of art.’ When countries have collections of art, they often call them part of their ‘national treasury.’ For those who can afford it, they spend whatever it takes to buy and own a ‘priceless work of art.’ Collectors spend millions on rare paintings and then often lock them away in their own private galleries – what a waste!
