Parables of Jesus: The Sower

Parables of Jesus: The Sower
Lluís Raventós
Saturday of the Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Lk 8:4-15
“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of the sky ate it up. Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it withered for lack of moisture. Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it. And some seed fell on good soil...
Gospel's Commentary
Today we hear a very important parable: the one of the sower. There it appears the task of the Christian to sanctify himself: to be a good soil, prepared to receive the divine seed. We don’t create sanctity, it is given by God. - But God counts with our freedom. Let us educate freedom then! Because some walk by life overwhelmed. What is in my heart? Stones? Thistle? Cultivated soil?
