The big search

 
Memorial of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Priest, based on Matthew 13:44-46

Jesus said to the crowds,
  “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

  “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
