Consecrated Path in Common

Greetings on this the Wednesday of the Third Week in Ordinary Time
Readings Heb 10:11-18; PS 110:1, 2, 3, 4; Mk 4:1-20

Note: From the USCCB CCC 916. The state of consecrated life is thus one way of experiencing a “more intimate” consecration, rooted in Baptism and dedicated totally to God. In the consecrated life, Christ’s faithful, moved by the Holy Spirit, propose to follow Christ more nearly, to give themselves to God who is loved above all and, pursuing the perfection of charity in the service of the Kingdom, to signify and proclaim in the Church the glory of the world to come.

Upon the Heart

The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying:

This is the covenant I will establish with them
    after those days, says the Lord:
“I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them upon their minds,”

Parable of the Seed

Each baptized person shares in consecration by baptism. A setting apart and setting down. A change of path and change in mode of thinking. While most of us are not in consecrated orders specifically we do have this charism to share.

The parable of the seed is about the pathways we select and why we select a particular path.
Jesus said to them, “Do you not understand this parable?

Bear fruit thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.
How? In your perfection of charity in the service of the Kingdom.

Don’t take a different path!

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
