With the Sacrament, an Epistle reading that might be familiar to some, a Gospel reading that most of you have heard many times, and a connection that I only recently noticed. St Paul got hassled, even though he was, at least in terms of what people claimed to count, among the better of the same people that were giving him so many problems! And if you look at the Parable of the Sower and realize what’s different between us and the seeds that were sown, you might see how they relate.
NOTE: Apologize for the less-than-perfect chapel today. Things will soon be improving, especially once I get full-time control of that facility.
