Luke 8:4-15

My friends! The word is not only the gospel we hear preached it includes all those inspirations which come to us in the course of the day. Jesus speaks to us and asks us to help someone, to phone someone who is ill, to visit someone or volunteer. How many times we think to ourselves: “I should get more involved in helping the poor, I should spend more time in prayer! I should make it a point to make a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament.” Our lives at times are filled with good intentions but how frequently do these come to fruition. They might get choked out by other activity.
