Mark 4:26-34 St. Angela Merici The parables of the seed and mustard seed call us to not miss God’s wisdom in the obvious. It is easy to miss the fact that God does great things with small beginnings. Mustard seeds are tiny, yet they yield a hearty, large bush. God can make greatness from nothing. Dear God, may I see the potential for good. Grant me the courage to be an optimist for myself and for others. Let us pray for Peace in our world.
