Tuesday, 14th Week Ord Time: "his heart was moved with pity"

"The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest."

Everyone is called to enter the kingdom. First announced to the children of Israel, this messianic kingdom is intended to accept men of all nations. To enter it, one must first accept Jesus' word:

The word of the Lord is compared to a seed which is sown in a field; those who hear it with faith and are numbered among the little flock of Christ have truly received the kingdom. Then, by its own power, the seed sprouts and grows until the harvest.
-- CCC 543

The heart of the Lord Jesus, moved with pity for us, feeds us with the light of truth through our Holy Father who today issues a new encyclical teaching, ON INTEGRAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT IN CHARITY AND TRUTH. Today is a day set apart for this and another reason. Find out why here.
