Was there a good point or two in the sermon you heard during your Mass to fulfill your Sunday obligation?
Let us know.
For my part, taking a cue from the Gospel for Sexagesima Sunday, the parable of the sower and the seed, I spoke about preparing the terrain of the mind and heart to receive the Word of God which is extended to us in every spoken and sung word in Holy Mass. Of course that applies more to the TLM which sticks to Mass texts than it might to a OF Mass with hymns that substitute for Mass texts, but I digress.
If we want something to grow well, we prepare the soil beforehand so that the seed has the best environment in which it can germinate and sprout. Looking at the texts of Mass before Mass is a good way to do that. Then, attending carefully during Mass with the active receptivity that the Church wants for us, results in a good sowing of the seed. Afterward, we don’t just forget about it. We still have to tend the planted seed, by keeping it watered and warm. So, we should for the first part of the week review what we had heard at the last Sunday Mass. Then, start over.
