For 31 July 2019, Wednesday of week 17 in Ordinary Time, based on Matthew 13:44-46
Jesus said to his disciples, Â â€œThe 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.
Â â€œAgain, 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.
