Have you ever looked closely at the icon called Christ the Sower? It shows Christ holding a bag of seeds in one hand, and planting them. What do you know about this icon? Do you know what those seeds stand for?
It takes just a few minutes to watch this great video, and listen to Fr. Christopher Makiej explain what Christ is doing with those seeds. His message is gentle, even humorous in places, but it’s worth your time. Especially during this Holy Week, Fr. Christopher helps you ask this important question: “When is it going to change from Jesus out there, to Jesus in here – in us?”
