Parables of Jesus: The sower

Parables of Jesus: The sower
Lluís Raventós
Wednesday of the Third Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mk 4:1-20
Jesus began to teach by the sea. A very large crowd gathered around him so that he got into a boat on the sea and sat down (…). And in the course of his instruction he said to them, “Hear this! A sower went out to sow …."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we hear the parable of the sower. God plants the seed of love in every man’s heart; God loves all of us, without exception. But our response to His love is diverse: some do not even listen; others get excited at first, but "flop" at the first difficulty; others get sunk with things... —Oh Lord, grant me to be a fertile soil where the seed of your love can take root and bear fruit.
