Speak Lord: and speak again…

Some seed fell into rich soil and produced its crop.

You care for the earth, give it water,
you fill it with riches.
Your river in heaven brims over
to provide its grain.

Some seed fell into rich soil and produced its crop.

And thus you provide for the earth;
you drench its furrows;
you level it, soften it with showers;
you bless its growth.

Some seed fell into rich soil and produced its crop.

You crown the year with your goodness.
Abundance flows in your steps,
in the pastures of the wilderness it flows.

Some seed fell into rich soil and produced its crop.

The hills are girded with joy,
the meadows covered with flocks,
the valleys are decked with wheat.
They shout for joy, yes, they sing.

Some seed fell into rich soil and produced its crop.

Psalm 64:10-14

The readings at Mass this Sunday, the 15th in Ordinary Time, all speak of fruitfulness and God’s desire that his word be fruitful for us.

The psalm sings these themes! And so the thankfulness of the faithful is amplified… to sing is to pray twice and the psalm, especially, is the congregation’s prayer as it listens to the word of God afresh.

Count your blessings. Where can you see that God’s word has been fruitful in your life and for others?
