He sold all that he had and bought the field.
† A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew 13:44-46
Jesus said to his disciples: “The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when someone finds treasure hidden in a field and buries it again. A person like that is happy and goes and sells everything
in order to buy that field.” “The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when a shop owner is looking for fine pearls. After finding a very valuable one, the owner goes and sells everything in order to buy that pearl.”

The gospel of the Lord.
