Nurturing the Seed of Faith

06-17-2018Rev. Msgr. Ellsworth R. Walden
One of the wonders that is before us in nature is the growth of the flowers and produce in our gardens. The last time I went out east, I bought strawberries in Mattituck that were big, ripe, and delicious. There is a very short period of time when the local strawberries and other local produce are available. In today’s Gospel Jesus uses the image of seeds being planted and growing. The seed of faith is planted in each one of us when we are baptized. In our early years our parents, siblings, relatives, and teachers help that seed to grow. Like the seeds we put in the ground, the seed of faith planted at baptism needs to be nurtured with love. That love not only comes from the countless sacrifices and concern of parents but also from the good example of all of us.READ MORE
