Today's Gospel invites us to have hope that, despite the difficulties we encounter in life, the Kingdom of God is being built daily. It is the seed sown in the garden, the place of Jesus' agony and burial. This seed grows and becomes a tree for all. But this seed can also be seen as the love that Jesus put in our hearts. Thus we are challenged to make this love grow in us. He also invites us to persevere in this journey of faith until the moment we meet Him, "until the whole dough has leavened".

How can we make this love grow in us? First of all we need God's help, his grace, because without Him, Psalm 127 tells us, we cannot even live this love. Then we must refer to the love between Jesus Christ and the Church, his Bride. Saint Paul speaks of conjugal love. This love must be, first of all, oblative. A love is oblative when it is concrete, unconditional, ready to sacrifice life. Then this love must be creative, that is to say, the encounter between man and woman matures, makes both people grow in their own identities, they become adults. Finally, this love must be witnessed.
