On this #SeaSunday, we entrust to the Virgin Mary, Star of the Sea, all maritime personnel, fishermen, and their families. They have made many sacrifices – even during the lockdown – to continue working to provide us with food and other primary needs.
The #GospelOfTheDay (Mt 13:1-23) recalls that the Word of God is a fruitful and effective seed that God scatters generously everywhere. If we want, we can become good soil, ploughed and carefully cultivated, to help ripen the seed of the Word. Making it fruitful depends on us.
Faith is either missionary or it is no faith at all. Faith takes us out of ourselves and toward others. Faith must be transmitted, not to convince but to offer a treasure. Let us ask the Lord to help us live our faith with open doors: a transparent faith.
