Jesus reveals divine wisdom through parables

Jesus reveals divine wisdom through parables
Pili Piñero
Thursday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mt 13:10-17
"To anyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; from anyone who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand."
Gospel's Commentary
Today Jesus’ words sound somewhat mysterious. But they are very precise: God sows generously. If the heart responds, then it experiences more hunger for God and receives even more ... But if the heart is closed (without deep "grooves") or full of rocks, then... - Many souls have had few opportunities in life. God speaks to them gently, with parables, with the things of our earth. Others -perhaps you- have received more and Jesus can speak to us more directly. We’re lucky, aren’t we?
