Jesus once told a parable about sowing a mustard seed.

“What shall we say the Kingdom of God is like?” It is like this. A man takes a mustard seed, the smallest seed in the world, and plants it in the ground.
It is so small, like a speck of dust. After a while, it grows up and becomes the biggest of plants.
It puts out such large branches that the birds come and make their nests in it.
THE GROUND  – A person’s heart
THE SEED – God’s love.
A SMALL PLANT – Good actions.
FULLY GROWN TREE- The Kingdom of God.


Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.Leave the rest to God.
Pope Francis speaks with us about the care of the Oceans
Pope Francis talks about the grave challenge of protecting the oceans.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot join Pope Francis in proclaiming this warning and the urgency of taking measures to protect the oceans.
