Bear fruit through perseverance

September 19, 2020 3:00 am

“But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.” (LK 8: 15)

The “rich soil” can “bear fruit through perseverance.” The same happens to people of “a generous and good heart.” That kind of a heart lives always in abundance, has always more to give and more to share. Generous hearts are always grateful and know that every good comes from Our Lord; they do not need “to produce” good, but only “to bear” good, which is a fruit of God’s grace and love. 

“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.” (Gospel Acclamation)
