Produces much fruit

August 10, 2016 7:43 am

“Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.” (JN 12: 24)

Death, which “produces much fruit,” and a gift of self, which offers love, are on the same page. Through his death Jesus is accessible to all and a giver of self Who will live forever. When we are concerned about how to be more a free, creative and joyful gift of self, we can recall “a grain of wheat [who] falls to the ground and dies”—and “produces much fruit.”

“Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
