A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew. Matthew 13:44-52
Jesus said to his disciples, “The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field. Someone finds the treasure, hides it and covers it up in the field. That person is happy, sells everything and buys the field.
And the kingdom of heaven is like a salesman looking for precious pearls. One day the salesman found a precious pearl, he went and sold everything he had, and he bought the pearl.”
