"Fertile Ground"- Deacon Dennis Saran Sunday Homily
This past Sunday one of the Archdiocese’s newly ordained transitional deacons, Deacon Dennis Saran, preached at St. Eugene Catholic Church in Fox Point, WI. If you remember Sunday’s Gospel account, you remember that Jesus told a parable about a sower sowing seeds and then relating this story to how people hear the Word of God and build their faith on that. Deacon Dennis’ homily focuses on how we as Catholics, specifically in Milwaukee can work to be “fertile ground” receptive to God’s word, even when we go through hardships.
Deacon Dennis has always seemed to be a calm voice of reason for as long as I have known him and I’m sure that St. Eugene parishioners can attest to that as well.
