The reign of God: nothing can stop it

Monday of 17th week, based on Matthew 13:31-35

Jesus put before them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.” Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables; without a parable he told them nothing. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth to speak in parables; I will proclaim what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.”

About Dominic DeLay OP

Dominic is a filmmaker in Los Angeles, California. With his production company Mud Puddle Films he creates emotionally engaging, thought-provoking, and artistic films for mainstream audiences, films that ask questions more than give answers. And even the questions are not necessarily articulated in language. He likes to quote choreographer Martha Graham’s response when asked what one of her dances meant: “If I could tell you what it means, I wouldn’t have to dance it.” His new film, "Inside Darkness," is about three presidential candidates trapped in a dark cell.
