Like seeds the word of God is spread across the world. However, there are factors that determine positive growth. The quality of the soil determines the growth that will be actualized. Beloved, what kind of soil are we? How do we receive the word of God? Our modern world is full of distractions; the rocks, thorns, birds and many others that militate against the growth of God’s word in our hearts. We are challenged to be like the rich soil that will yield a rich harvest of faith. ‘O that today you hear the word of God, harden not your heart’ (Ps. 95:7).
ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot receive you sacramentally now, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself to you. Never permit me to be separated from you Amen.
