“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. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.”
What do you experience as you sit with this passage?
Life / growth; life / death—a cycle we’re familiar with on a daily basis.
Plant a seed or spend a few reflective moments outside in the midst of new growth today.
Heritage word—“However harsh (God’s) dealings may sometimes seem to you, they are always the dealings of an infinitely wise, just and good God, who awaits us all at the end, but after leading us by different roads.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
