BEYOND ME
Jesus likens the kingdom of God to seed planted in the ground which germinates and develops by its own inner force until it bears fruit.  
 Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
The story of David's sins and the resulting impact of his covenant relationship with God illustrate critical structures of salvation history. Today's first reading recounts his sins up to the battlefield death of Uriah the Hittite. We focus on King David today, but as a sinful and weak community we all need repentance. In our liturgy we response in repentance as a praying community. We need acknowledgment and contrition to bring each us to transformation in our lives.
 
The psalmist tells us that our Heavenly Father is kind and merciful. Made in the image and likeness of God, we too are called to show mercy to others and to do acts of kindness for them. Whether through almsgiving, words of encouragement, heartfelt gestures of caring, or deep listening. All are signs of God's love and forgiveness. From Psalm 51, the classic song of the contrite heart, in the refrain we hear that God is merciful, compassionate, and loving.
 
In the Gospel, Jesus speaks of the Kingdom of God. Jesus likens the kingdom of God to seed planted in the ground which germinates and develops by its own inner force until it bears fruit. This is like the love of God alive in you and me.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder.
 
 "Beyond Me" from an unknown author.
 
Almost everything is beyond me: the inner workings of a combustion engine,
 
The DNA helix, the orbiting of planets, how gravity and grace work, the flight
 
of the bumblebee.

 
Is there anything that I truly comprehend?
 
Anything that is not beyond me?

 
One thing alone, one thing I understand:
 
the kindness behind being given a cup of water,
 
a word of affirmation, a smile across a subway aisle.
