Daily homily thoughts, 7/27

Today’s alleluia verse is based off of Luke 15:8, and it goes like this: “Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.”  We can yield a harvest only through perseverance. We want the fruit to come right away, but very often it takes time. Lots of time. Lots and lots of time. We must persevere. Then the harvest will come.
