Rain falls from God upon Everyone the poor and rich together.
In the countryside the fields are plowed and slowly what grows in the dark yields: corn, beans, tomatos, strawberries and raspberries. Weeks prior it looks as if 'nothing is happening.' The farmer, however, keeps watering, weeding and fertilizing. The later has a fragrance that to some is strong and avoidable. It is providing a seasoning to the nascent seed in the earth. The waste of one gives rise to new growth that feeds others.
Christ is our harvester who constantly rains on our seeds of faith. He sees into the depths of our soul helping us to 'keep the faith' in times of doubt, infertility or waiting. For not as the world sees does the harvester see.
This Sunday may our hearts be opened to the softness of grace to bring forth new life!
