(Introductory Prayers)
 


THE GOSPEL
Matthew 13:1-23

But the seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it.

Lord,

We have heard you talk of roots,
thorns and rocky ground.
Show us also, please,
your rich soil that
gives plush
fruit.

Help us to receive. Please open our ears.
And understanding. Open our minds.
And open for us loving actions.
Please give us
heart.

THE FIRST READING
Isaiah 55:10-11

My word shall not return to me void, but shall do my will,

achieving the end for which I sent it.

Lord of fertile land,
 tend our souls.
Make them
fruitful.

And
send us out
 to plant your Word

inside the whole world.


THE SECOND READING
Romans 8:18-23

For creation awaits with eager expectation the revelation of the children of God.

All
Creation
Is groaning
laboring within itself,
eagerly awaiting the growth
you will give it through your Spirit.

Oh let us see all the way to the
soul of this troubled world
so as to help you

to save it.
