The Good Ground

"But he that received seed into the good ground is he who hears the word and understands, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."

I want to highlight two images that told us the song and have much to contribute to a truly spiritual understanding of the Gospel that we have shared.

The first is the image of the light emanating from the Word that enlightens one who appropriates, that endorses.

The second is the image of the tears that spring from the heart, touched by a true understanding of it.
Only when we assume a personal responsibility for the evil that is in the world, we can be truly empowered to effect positive change in our environment and in tónicohe global order.

This requires recognition of our iniquities, those actions (words, omissions ...) with which we have truly contributed to disorder and injustice.

And not talking about just a verbal or intellectual recognition. We mourn our sins. As of that pain will spring new life in Christ, that illuminates a dark and lost world.

Lord give us your light about:

- The injustices we did before conversion:  You  completely erase them by the precious blood of Christ.

- The sins and errors that we commit after our conversion: We must be awared of that cool our relationship with Christ and may we offend, mislead and even to other Christians and non-Christians.

- That we are always willing to forgive the mistakes and weaknesses of our brothers in faith and neighbor in general:  As we expect and hope that they forgive us and forgive our own.
