27 Jan Be Rich Soil (Mk 4:8) by Dr. Pat Castle
“And some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit.” ~ Mk 4:8 (full readings)
Pat’s Reflections: LIFE Runners are truly rich soil and capable of producing Pro-Life fruit. However, we can’t produce Pro-Life fruit without planting lots of seeds and watering those seeds with love and compassion. Planting and watering is done by being authentically Pro-Life. Being Pro-Life means to be Pro-God and Pro-Neighbors. The great commandment is to love God with all our heart and to love our neighbor as ourselves. The more we love God, the more Pro-Life we become. The more we love our neighbors, the more Pro-Life we become. To be Pro-Life is to be filled with a JOY (Jesus, Others, You) that prompts us to put our live-saving faith in action for others. Wearing your “REMEMBER The Unborn Jer 1:5” jersey in public – is for God and neighbor. Pro-Life = God first, Life always, Teammates forever!
