Friday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time

Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 47 Signaling the Times for the Work of God
Mass: Jr 3:14-17; Resp Ps (Jr 31); Mt 13:18-23

The seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold. 
The Word speaks to us in myriad and sundry ways each and every day, from the rising to the setting of the sun. Words from the psalmist come to mind: If today you hear God's voice, harden not your hearts (Ps 95:8). How is the soil of your heart today? Is it in needing of tending?

Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord until he comes and showers righteousness on you.(Ho 10:12)
