FAITH BOOK

15th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (A) July 12, 2020

Isaiah 55: 10-11; Psalm 65; Romans 8: 18-23; Matthew 13:1-23

By: Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

"A sower went out to sow.... some seed fell on rich soil

And produced fruit,

A hundred or sixty or thirtyfold."

 

Reflection:

 

We might imitate the parable and at least try a little sowing. We will keep eyes and ears open for a chance, in some overt or subtle way, to speak a word of faith to the curious, weary, despairing, doubting and searching. Who knows what the results of such seed-sowing might be? But the results are not under our control, are they? We are those who sow, wait and look for surprising results.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • How am I now the seed that God is planting in the world?

  • Where and when am I called to speak the Word of God in my daily life?
