Parables of Jesus: The dragnet

Parables of Jesus: The dragnet
Lluís Raventós
Thursday of the Seventeenth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mt 13:47-53
Jesus said to his disciples, «You will see that every teacher of the Law who becomes a disciple of the Kingdom is like a householder who can produce from his store things both new and old».
Gospel's Commentary
Today Jesus breaks schemes. Who has said that faith and religion are obsolete and even boring? For the last three centuries, especially in the West, there has been a bunch of "know-it-all" folks that have been tirelessly repeating it. But what does Jesus say? Whoever seeks the Kingdom of Heaven has no time to get bored: we will never finish the richness of the Gospel! "All those false prophets are disappearing." The Church does not! Forever Young! And..., you too, try not to disappear!
