In today’s Gospel,  we need to place ourselves in a world which has no understanding of the inner workings of plant genetics. So, Jesus uses the parables of the seed being planted and, in mystery yields a harvest, and that a mustard seed, “the smallest of seeds” yields the biggest plant in the field, again in mystery.

The word of God, spreads as we, in turn, may sow seeds, may nourish the plants as they grow, may “bring in the sheaves,” rejoicing over the abundant harvest of souls.
