Drumconrath Parish Bulletin
10th July, 2011
Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
God speaks his word to us in many ways. Jesus compared the word of God to a seed, a seed which can make our lives fruitful. However, if a seed is to produce a harvest it must be planted in good soil. What kind of soil do we offer God's word? If our lives are barren it can only mean that we have not allowed God's word to take root in our hearts. But God does not give up on us.
God cares for the earth by sending rain to make it fruitful. He cares for us by sending us his word.
The glory which awaits us in the next life far outweighs anything we could suffer in this life.
Jesus compares the word of God to a seed falling into the ground.
