The Word we listen to each week can bear much fruit in very simple ways:
1) Arrive at church a few minutes before Mass begins so that we can slow down and have our minds cleared of distractions
2) Look over the readings prior to coming to Mass so that we will not be hearing them for the first time
3) Spend a few minutes each day reflecting on the readings that we heard during Mass (This is like adding water to the newly planted seeds so that they can grow)
4) Go to confession monthly to remove the weeds that continually reappear within us so that the Word of the Lord can grow unimpeded
So what are these fruits? They are "love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." (Galatians 5:22)
There is an excellent FREE smartphone app available for iPhone users. It is called Evangelizo. It contains the daily Mass readings and commentaries available with one simple touch. It even comes in different languages.
God bless, F. Peter
