Letters from a Pastor to His People- July 12, 2020
Just a reminder, I am away currently and will be for the entire month of July making a 30-Day Retreat. I wrote this week’s letter, and the upcoming letters, ahead of time, just to offer a little spiritual reflection on the readings. I would also, however, like to provide some wisdom from St. Ignatius of Loyola. Perhaps you could do a little "30-Day Retreat" with me.
Jesus provides in our Gospel this week the classic parable of the Sower. We are the ground. Jesus sows his grace and his word upon us. The question is, what kind of ground are we? Are we a path, rocky ground, a field with thorn bushes, or rich soil?
