Seeds of Faith

Life is like a field where we sow different types of seeds every day. For the seeds to grow, they need fertile soil and favorable conditions for their fruit to be good. As I reflect on my life, I realize the importance of cultivating the land with the right fertilizer so that the seeds I sow grow and bear fruit.

By embracing the grace of receiving Jesus in the Eucharist and before immersing myself in the experience of SJW volunteering, I understood that at that moment in my life I needed to sow the seed of trust and abandonment in God’s will. This decision marked a before and after in my life, as through this program I was able to fertilize my spiritual land to sow new seeds that have been fundamental in my growth: leadership, spirituality, community, social justice, and simplicity. Every day, along with these new seeds, I have planted seeds in others, seeking to create a garden full of God’s presence.

On this journey with Jesus, I have understood the importance of sowing andcultivating the seed of love daily. As St. John of the Cross says, “Where there is nolove, put love — and you will find love.” This phrase is a personal invitation to place this seed at the center of my life and to act with love every day. During my volunteering at Christ Cathedral, I could see that every person I met reflected the love of Christ. The Ministry of bereavement taught me that love is a seed that grows day by day in each volunteer, accompanied by compassion and active listening. In each person who was part of my process, I felt how God’s love seed made me feel loved, cared for, and embraced every day. I also observed this seed of love in the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, who showed me the meaning of denying themselves and being docile to God’s will.
