The Parable of the Sower the focus of this month's Lectio Divina

October 16, 2009

Even in a Church full of atheists, the Eucharist would still be the body and blood of Christ... the effectiveness of the Sacrament on those gathered though, depends on how you receive our Lord.
I'm paraphrasing, but this is one of Archbishop Collins' comments in this month's Lectio Divina as he continues his reflections on the parables of Jesus.
He of course is discussing this in the context of the parable of the Sower and the seed that falls on the path, on rocky ground, amongst thorns, and on good soil. (Matthew 13:1-23)
What kind of soil are we? How do we receive the Word of God? How do we open ourselves to the Sacraments? How do we receive our neighbour?
Take some time to consider this in October's broadcast edition of Lectio Divina with Archbishop Thomas Collins: The Parables of Jesus. Tune in to Salt + Light and pray the parables, Sunday, October 18th at 9pm ET with an encore presentation Wednesday, October 21st at 8pm ET, only on Salt + Light Television!
As we continue our third season of Lectio Divina, for those who would like to revisit our first season, Lectio Divina with Archbishop Thomas Collins: Sermon on the Mount, the nine-part series is now available on DVD at our S+L store.
