Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - A,  July 16, 2017

On that day, Jesus went out of the house and sat down by the sea..."And he spoke to them at length in parables saying: “a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground...But some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold. Whoever have ears ought to hear."   - Mt 13:1-9
