15th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on July 15, 1990

Readings: Isaiah 55: 10-11; Romans 8: 18-23; Matthew 13: 1-23

In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that those that are really listening, will truly hear God and see God’s hands at work in our lives. From Isaiah, God is likened to a gentle rain. And yet, we also know that God also speaks to us as thunder and lightning.  In fact, God is always speaking, but are we always listening? In trying to discern the events of our day, we must know is that God is Love.  As Paul spoke to the Romans in today’s second reading, we too are reminded “Creation was made subject to futility, not of its own accord but by him who once subjected it; yet not without hope, because the world itself will be freed from its slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God.”
