Sexagesima Sunday: the Sower went out to Sow
The impediments to the success of the Word are many: the devil, the world, the flesh. In the days of Noah, these had succeeded in turning the entire world away from its Creator. In our day also, the Church is small. The Parable of the Sower is about these things, with a message of hope: still the Word produces a crop an hundredfold. This is only because of the power of God in the Word, against all foes. Just as Christ himself rose from the dead against all the odds, so His word accomplishes that for which it was sent. The sermon.
