    Marriage Matters

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

(Isaiah 55:10-11 Rom 8:18-23 Matthew 13:1-23)

Listen to the person behind the words

The stony ground is when we are too engrossed in the telly, reading or working on the computer to listen to our partner. The thorny ground is where we disengage with such but not wanting real involvement, suggest a cuppa as a diversion. We are called to be fertile ground by real listening – hold hands, look in each other’s eyes.
