Parables of Jesus: The Sower

Parables of Jesus: The Sower
Lluís Raventós
Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
Gospel text
Mt 13:1-23
"As he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground, where it had little soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep, and when the sun rose it was scorched, and it withered for lack of roots. Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it. But some seed fell on rich soil, and produced fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold. Whoever has ears ought to hear."
