St. Peter Chrysologus

Matthew 13:31-35

Jesus speaks of the smallness of a mustard seed and the work of hidden yeast.  Both can change the world. We look back at the small beginnings of Jesus to a few fishermen, prostitutes, tax collectors, sinners, and yet, the Church is everywhere today. We look at Francis of Assisi who was laughed at for his simple way of life and thousands continue to follow in his footsteps. I am sure many had their doubts about Vincent de Paul and today he is known throughout the world. 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!
