The Title of the book: A SOWER WENT OUT TO SOW, DHYANAVANA PUBLICATIONS, BANGALORE 2012, pp. xii + 356

Author: Rudolf V. D'Souza OCD
Price: Rs. 200

The title of Father D’Souza’s volume with homilies for liturgical year C, A Sower Went Out To Sow, is taken from Jesus’ parable of the sower. His previous collection of homilies for liturgical year B, The Mustard Seed, was very well received, as these thought provoking homilies should likewise be. With his readable and friendly style and his use of striking examples, Father D’Souza is like the sower in Jesus’ parable. He wants the word of God to grow in his readers’ hearts, striving to overcome the many different obstacles in their way. Attuned to the “new methods” of the New Evangelization, the author engages his audience, so that they will bear abundant spiritual fruit.

In this collection, the writer offers his personal reflections based on his twenty-five years of pastoral experience and his meditation, in the great Carmelite tradition of spirituality, on the word of God. Father D’Souza wants us to open our minds and our wills, our thoughts and our sentiments to the richness of the word as presented in the lectionary for year C of the Church’s liturgical cycle. They can be profitably used by everyone preparing for Mass, and especially by priests and deacons charged with bringing God’s word into the soil of everyday life. It is my prayer that this volume will be of a great spiritual help to all those who wish to ponder God’s holy word and put it into practice in their lives.
