Another “take” on Matthew 13:28 – A parable for the modern church

Matthew 13:24-30 Another parable he (Jesus) proposed to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seed in his field. But while men were asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle weeds among the wheat and went his way.

(The 2nd Vatican Council was a legitimate, duly called and properly conducted church council. But enemies of the church took advantage of the council’s aftermath, introducing dissent, heresy, and confusion, into even the highest offices of the church.)

And when the blade was sprung up, and had brought forth fruit, then appeared also the cockle weeds.

(As the various authentic reforms of the 2nd Vatican council were implemented, the results were oddly, not very good. In fact, the most substantial results were great apostasy, falling away, scandal, and widespread spiritual anarchy.)

And the servants of the good man of the house coming said to him. Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it cockle weeds?

(Faithful Catholics remarked, “How can this be? Was not the 2nd Vatican Council an authentic church council? Did not all the bishops, in union with the pope, agree with and sign all the various documents and decrees? Did not the fathers desire only what is good for the church? Was not the Holy Spirit truly present there, as faithful guide and advocate?”)

And he said to them: An enemy hath done this.

(An enemy HAS done this!)

And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather it up?

(Something has obviously gone dramatically wrong! What shall we do now … start over?)

And he said: No, lest perhaps gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it.

(The Catholic Church has been in existence for 2000 years and it is built on Rock. It has withstood many similar attacks. Scripture, Tradition, authentic Magisterial Teachings and the Holy Spirit, will most certainly see it through.)

Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather up first the cockle, and bind it into bundles to burn, but the wheat gather into my barn.

(My grace shall be sufficient for the truly faithful, who love me, and whom I also love. To Hell with the rest of them!)
