The Epistle is a vivid picture, moving in quick action over Europe and Asia, but above all, moving our soul to action as it describes the sacrifices of the convert Paul to preach the "word of God" despite persecutions from without and passions from within. Hence, in the Prayer we implore his aid "against all adversities."
The Gospel, so appropriate to the coming Springtime, pictures Jesus as a Sower, sowing seed, "the word of God," on three kinds of soils and souls. The Introit calls upon the Divine Sower not to cast us off but to prepare us for His Word which "we have heard." The Offertory beseeches the Divine Ear to "hear my words" for which we praise Him in the Gradual.
Low Mass for Sexagesima Sunday will be said at St Francis of Assisi, Llay Chain, Llay at 1230pm on Sunday 8th February.
