A Message from Fr. George
Greetings Parishioners and Friends of St. Julie’s,
I was delighted to see that the Gospel for this weekend is a parable… specifically The Parable of the Sower and the Seed. I love parables. They teach us so much in a fashion and manner that is easy to remember. In the Scriptures, a parable is meant to communicate a moral or religious lesson by using a familiar or common element of Jesus’ day. While many of us do not sow fields of wheat, barley or corn by hand, we may have the experience of planting a new lawn or patching a bare spot here or there. The common agricultural element remains the same. Take care how and where you sow.
As a parable, the message is clear. The seed is word of the kingdom and we are the medium which receives it… albeit the hard and trodden path, the rocky ground, the thorny patch or the rich and fertile soil. While the message of the Kingdom and teaching brought forward is a primary application, we may also transfer it to our homes, family and friends.
How often has a household rule fallen on deaf ears? (take out the dog, clean-up your room, be on time) Isn’t the frequency of selective hearing an ignoring of some value or need? (a voice that is trying to communicate a day’s work or frustration) Aren’t the tears/pleas of children or the lonely, all opportunities to do the work of Christ? (It hurts. I can’t do the things I used to do. I miss your father/mother so very much.) I am certain that you can find many more ways in which we receive a message and are called to nurture it to maturity. This week, do not be afraid to catch every moment as an opportunity of God’s grace. Bear fruit that will last!
