The parable of the weeds among the wheat shows that God has chosen to allow good and bad to co-exist. If God is all powerful, and Loving, why would God allow evil to exist? This homily addresses that question, and shares that where evil abounds, God's grace abounds all the more. Our response to evil should be to be better Christians; more loving, more forgiving, working harder to share in the mission of Jesus; to save souls that they may repent and accept the love and forgiveness of God. Together we can be the mustard seed growing into a large shelter for all, and the leaven in the dough making the whole batch rise!
