Sexagesima Sunday

(Luke 8:15) "But that on the fertile ground, are they, who in a good heart hearing the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit in patience."

The visit, which Our Lord makes to us in the Sacrament of His Love, is the grand means whereby He gives fertility to our souls.  Hence it is that the Church invites us... to draw nigh to the altar of our God; there, our heart shall regain all the youthful fervour of its best days.

~ Abbot Gueranger, O.S.B.; The Liturgical Year
