Ephesians 5: 21- 33

5:21Be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
5:22Wives should be submissive to their husbands, as to the Lord.
5:23For the husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the Church. He is the Savior of his body.
5:24Therefore, just as the Church is subject to Christ, so also should wives be subject to their husbands in all things.
5:25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and handed himself over for her,
5:26so that he might sanctify her, washing her clean by water and the Word of life,
5:27so that he might offer her to himself as a glorious Church, not having any spot or wrinkle or any such thing, so that she would be holy and immaculate.
5:28So, too, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
5:29For no man has ever hated his own flesh, but instead he nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ also does to the Church.
5:30For we are a part of his body, of his flesh and of his bones.
5:31“For this reason, a man shall leave behind his father and mother, and he shall cling to his wife; and the two shall be as one flesh.”
5:32This is a great Sacrament. And I am speaking in Christ and in the Church.
5:33Yet truly, each and every one of you should love his wife as himself. And a wife should fear her husband.

Luke 13: 18- 21

13:18And so he said: “To what is the kingdom of God similar, and to what figure shall I compare it?
13:19It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and cast into his garden. And it grew, and it became a great tree, and the birds of the air rested in its branches.”
13:20And again, he said: “To what figure shall I compare the kingdom of God?
