The readings for the Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year B (see below) are filled with images of growth. The first reading tells of planting a shoot on a mountain, which then becomes a shelter for the birds. And in the gospel Jesus tells the parable of the seed that grows and the parable of the mustard seed.
Spiritual growth and growth of the Kingdom of God are themes for these readings. Here are some suggested resources for this Sunday:
