I went to see my spiritual director, a Jesuit priest, last week. There were only a few people at Mass that morning, but as always he preached with care. It was The Feast of All Saints and Blesseds for the Society of Jesus, for which the Gospel is taken from John: "I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds."
One of his points was that we are all the seeds of the saints - the dozen of us sitting in that chapel were seeds planted by Jesuit saints in particular. And as Bernadette Farrell's makes majestically clear in this piece, "There is no harvest without sowing of grain..."
