Saints Joachim and Ann, Parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary –
We look back at the small beginnings of Jesus, a few fishermen, prostitutes, tax collectors, and sinners. By no means are any of us insignificant. We can bring about the kingdom in our own little way. We are to be leavening agents in our world by our actions and our words. We can make a difference being generous instead of selfish, understanding rather than judgmental, cooperative rather than competitive. In God’s world we are the yeast.
