The word of God is to the human heart
what a seed is to the earth.
However, just as a seed needs soil,
so the word needs a receptive heart.
The earth responds to the rain and sun
so that even the desert blooms.
But the arid human heart has the power to resist so that it remains barren.
Lord, soften our hearts with your grace,
open them with your gentle love,
so that the precious seed of your word
may take root in our hearts,
and bear fruit in our lives.

God’s word comforts, guides inspires and challenges us in turn. It is like precious seed. The sower sowed the seed haphazardly: on the path, on the rocks, among the thorns, and on good ground. He was extremely generous with the seed. He wanted to give every part of the field a chance to produce something. God keeps on sowing his word in our hearts. The seed of God’s word, once dropped into the human heart, never dies. It’s never too late to act on the word of God.
Pray for Seán Fitzgerald, Clochán Dubh, Baile na nGall; Timothy (Tim) Horgan, Ballyhorgan, Lixnaw. Suaimhneas síoraí dá n-anamacha.
