(2nd Week in Ordinary Time – Tuesday)
A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:44-46
Jesus said to the crowd, “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.
—The Gospel of the Lord.
