Saint Bridget,
Pray for us
Matthew 13:24-30


Jesus’ story of the weeds and the wheat tells us of God’s mercy and patience. It warns us not to be less merciful and patient than God as we survey other members of the church. Which of us would not like to be part of a church in which there were no hypocrites, in which all its members always practiced what they preached? The parable of the weeds and wheat obviously deals with membership in the kingdom. There are both good and bad in it. It is not in our place to judge which is wheat or weed.
