Some of the seeds fell into good soil, and when they grew they produced a crop of a hundredfold. – Lk 8:8

Reflection.  Jesus tells of the seeds falling on good soil.  The parable refers to the Word of God falling on the open heart of a good listener.  When that happens, there is abundant growth, a rich harvest of wisdom, charity, and joy.

Prayer.  Holy Spirit, spread Your spiritual seeds upon me and give me life so that my charity and joy may be full.
