After hearing the Word of God, they hold it fast with a right and good heart and bear fruit in patience. - Lk 8:15

Reflection.  Let a person come forward, a living person capable of speaking to the heart; let truth flow from this person’s life and let the person’s power be matched by an equal gift of love.  Then people will listen to the Good News, and the dawn of better days will brighten our skies.  - Cardinal Duval

Prayer.  Dear Jesus, I have heard Your Word and I come forward to follow You.  Let me speak the truth with hope, and together we will bear rich fruit.
