July 31 – Wednesday
MT 13:36-43
Gospel Reading MT 13:44-46

Imagine the reaction of the person who finds the hidden treasure in this parable, how their hearts must have leapt to find it!
Their whole life is turned around; for the first time in their life they have hope that things will be better. They can’t wait to tell their family; but know they have to keep the treasure a secret until they have bought the field. But the person’s family will notice the change in them and wonder what good news has got hold of them.

Prayer: (all together)
Lord, let your presence in my heart transform everything for me. Amen
