15th Sunday, A. We are "good ground" for the seed of Christ the Word when we receive Him in the Eucharist with adoring love
Not all seeds are equal. Some of my efforts at sowing in the garden this year did not meet with results. This could be the fault of the seed or the sower.
There is one seed, however, that is never sown in good soil without results: Jesus Christ the Eternal Word of God.
In the parable of the sower Christ tells us that the seed is the Word. The various places where the seed falls are the variety of souls who are exposed to the Word and react to this Divine self-revelation in different ways.
