The seed is the Word of God (from today’s Holy Gospel, Lk. 8.4-15). What the Lord and Savior comes to sow in our hearts is, as it were, a reflection of Himself just as He reflected Himself in the Apostle St. Paul who, in today’s Lesson (2 Cor. 11.19-33; 12.1-9), tells of his shipwrecks, perils, and stripes in labor and pain, in vigils, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness; and solicitude for all the faithful. Thus, those who say they come to sow the ‘word’ of God but come with a ‘Christ’ of the modern world’s fancy – one who rather understands them in whatever situation or circumstance they are led by their passions even unto styes of the basest indulgence of carnal pleasures than judges* them in their departure from the Natural Law, the Commandments, and Apostolic teachings and norms – let [them] be anathema (Gal. 1.9) for the Apostolic Tradition knows but Jesus Christ, and Him Crucified (1 Cor. 2.2).
* Cf., the Neo-Catholic ‘Order’ distortion of the notion of the true God – from a “Catholic God” (denied by the ‘Pontifex’ of the New DisOrder: “‘Pontifex to the Catholic Christ: ‘Thou art an embarrassment’”) to an ecumenical [g]od: “The New‘Catholic Theology’: Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II-‘Catholicism’”; see also Paul VI’s instruction to those who would be consecrated ministers (the Neo-Catholic ecumenical ‘priests’) of his New THEO… – to those who would be constituted sowers of poisoned seed: “Our ‘Great Reversal’”.
This divine seed is a supernatural light. Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my paths (Ps. 118.105). Thus, it reveals to us true value of things – that all is vanity and vexation of spirit (Eccles. 1.14) that does not serve God in not giving way to His rights and claims, to His Reason and laws.
Therefore it is said that the good ground who receives this divine light is upright, that is, it seek[s] before all things… His justice (Mt. 6.33) by giving the first place and centrally exalted place to God (denied in the Neo-Catholic DisOrder of Vatican II exemplified by the sanctuary that has now become host to the abomination of desolation, Mt. 24.15 – the Protestantized ‘Mass’ “fabricated,” testifies Card. Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, in “The Reform of the Roman Liturgy” by Msgr. Gamber, by an infiltrated Freemason, Annibale Bugnini of the Vincentian Community: cf., our post “The Catholic Sanctuary Prefigured of Old – II”).
The Neo-Catholic world inaugurated at Vatican II, to which the mainstream-SSPX of the disoriented Bp. Fellay seeks ‘official’ integration, which is in fornication with this Masonic New World DisOrder Our Lord does not pray for (cf., Jn. 17.9) cannot be the true Catholic Church for the divine seed brings not in it a newness of… mind that she be not conformed to this world (Rom. 12.2). And if the tree is judged by its fruit, ‘Catholic’ souls but walking in the light of Masonic ‘humanism’ (the 1789 Revolution of the ‘Rights of Man’ over the rights of God and of the Catholic Church) carry within them instead the poisoned ‘seed’ earlier sowed upon bad vocations (cf., our post “The Year that was 1929”). But they are lost if now they recognize the ‘poisoned’ seed and yet play indifference towards it – they are the hard ground ironically admitting and giving free access even to the enemy and thus actually letting him carry off for themselves the Truth.
