Memorial of Saint Alphonsus Liguori, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
"He who sows good seed is the Son of Man….”Matthew 13, 36
God does not observe our struggles passively , however with His life-giving blessing , His graces , values, good seeds, thoughts continuously sows , enriches our lives ! He does this with infinite love not once, not twice , but continuously on every day of our lives ! Just as the sunbather , getting out of the cool foam of the lake lies on the green grass and gives himself over to the blessed rays of the sun, somehow this is how we should give ourselves over on the field of prayer to the love of our heavenly Father , the deluge of His graces filling us , He carries out His work with infinite tenderness!
My brother/sister you are more than what you got to know about yourself , you rambled over, you are a fertile field callable of accepting the Word of God, such extrinsic values may spring up in you that you never even believed their existence ! Let God with curious trust , the Sower to carry out His task , because He is the One who knows what , how much we need so that we can take delight in the beautiful flowers of our souls !
translated by dr k.e.
Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house.
His disciples approached him and said,
"Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field."
He said in reply, "He who sows good seed is the Son of Man,
the field is the world, the good seed the children of the Kingdom.
The weeds are the children of the Evil One,
and the enemy who sows them is the Devil.
The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire,
so will it be at the end of the age.
The Son of Man will send his angels,
and they will collect out of his Kingdom
all who cause others to sin and all evildoers.
They will throw them into the fiery furnace,
where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun
in the Kingdom of their Father.
Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
Matthew 13, 36-43
