Parable of the Sower
Fr. Angelo Geiger preaches on the Parable of the Sower, explaining that Jesus is doing three things with this parable, He gives the parable, explains the need for parables and then explains the parable to the disciples. Father focuses on the fact that Jesus needed to use parables due to the hardness of our hearts and, of coarse, this is bad news because the parable itself likens hard hearts to the hardened path which was not receptive to the seed of the Words of Life. Let us pray to Our Lady, the Virgin Earth, the Fertile Ground to help soften our hard hearts and so be able to bear a rich fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.Ave Maria!
