Readings for today’s Mass
The one, like envelopes of seeds in a store, is never more than a seed. But for the seed that allows itself to be transformed, only then does it find its purpose.
i can think of a few ways for change to happen. The seed can sprout in the ground and be changed into a new life that reproduces itself many times over. The seed can be eaten by a bird and part of the life of the bird. Perhaps it might be ground and crushed to become part of something else to provide nourishment. Whatever the case, this seed ceases to exist. Unless it dies, it goes no further. The end of the line.
Students sometimes struggle trying to understand their purpose in life. They talk about it as trying to figure out God's plan. It can be a struggle. Discernment is not an easy task. The struggle can be part of the dying process that allows God to transform us into the person God intended us to be. It is through the transformative process, Jesus said, that we produce much fruit.
Do you ever struggle with finding yourself?
