  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 13:1-9)
Jesus used the usual everyday images of life and nature to point to a different order of reality – hidden, yet observable to those who had "eyes to see" and "ears to hear". Jesus' parable of the sower is meant at the hearers of his word. There are different ways of accepting God's word and they create different types of fruit accordingly. There is the prejudiced hearer who has a close mind. Such a person is un-teachable and unsighted to what he or she doesn't want to hear. Then another is the shallow hearer. He or she fails to think things absent or think them through; they lack depth. They may initially respond with a touching reaction; but when it wears off their mind roams to something else. Another type of hearer is the person who has many curiosities or cares, but who lacks the aptitude to hear or comprehend what is truly important. Such a person is for ever too busy to pray or also preoccupied to learn and meditates on God's word. He or she may work so hard that they are also tired to even think of anything as well but their work. Then there is the one group whose minds are open. Such persons are at all times willing to pay attention and to learn. He or she is by no means too proud or too busy to learn. They listen in order to recognize. God gives grace to persons who hunger for his word that they may realize his will and have the strength to survive according to it. Do we hunger for God's word?

Whoever does the will of my Father ...
