The soil of our hearts is hard, full of rocks, and infested with weeds. Only in some places is it well drained, rich, and able to produce in abundance. The invitation is simply to pay attention, noticing where things are rotting and where things are flourishing. It’s only when we pay attention to the good and the bad that we can begin to pray with Ezekiel that God will take from us hearts of stone and give to us hearts of flesh so that the seed sown in our hearts is not wasted.

-Br. James Koester, SSJE
