Letter from Father Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

So many of Jesus’s descriptions of the spiritual life are drawn from nature. Today’s parable of the sower is no exception.

Scattering seed is always going to be a risky business. 100% success is never achieved. I like to think that the seed that germinates and bears fruit, now a hundredfold etc. . . is a priestly people, a people set apart to intercede with Jesus on behalf of a fallen world.

Who knows the power of prayer better than Jesus, who invites us to join Him in pleading for the salvation of the world? Some people will bear fruit a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty…. But bear fruit we will.

Have a good week.

Fr. Richard
