Our midday break (for lunch and prayer) is almost over. During my Hour of Adoration, I was especially struck by today's Gospel: "Every plant not planted by my Father will be uprooted." I tend to interpret this as a "divine passive," which means that God is really the one doing the action. But it could also be the sheer nature of human initiatives that makes them susceptible to destruction. I found myself flipping pages to that other passage in the Gospel about the house that can't be shaken by wind or flood: the secret is that the house is built on the rock of God's word.
