Description
This book was written over a three year period while in sessions of Adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament. I first read and then summarized each Parable, or Miracle, and then added some brief comments concerning each one. Presented in an easy to read and orderly format, this book covers sixty-six events listed as either a Parable or a Miracle in my New American Bible (1986). I have written what has come to me while in Adoration. I have made no research, or study, into what others have written on these topics, as I wanted to see what would come to me through my own thinking process, and through God’s graces. This is meant to be a simple book of reflections; something that anyone could use for study, or meditation, as St. Alphonsus has asked us to do.

Summary
In his book, “The Dignity and Duties of the Priest”, St. Alphonsus De Liguori, in his Rule of Life, speaks of the need to begin each day with a half an hour meditation on the eternal truths. Each Parable and each Miracle of Our Lord Jesus Christ, as outlined in the Gospels, is filled with valuable lessons on how we must act towards Our Father and towards others. We should be setting aside at least a half an hour each day, preferably an hour, to read and study and meditate on them.

Excerpt
-The seed, of course is the Word, Jesus Christ, sent by the Father. This seed was sown in each of our hearts –it is part of us-but it can be stolen away by the devil. We can also reject the Word when persecution or hardship comes because of our belief in Jesus. It becomes too much trouble and we can be lured into taking an easier path. -We can also lose our faith and trust in Jesus and begin to think that we must create our own salvation through riches and distractions. But those that hear the Word and truly understand it realize that this understanding has been granted as a gift from God, and only because of God and this gift, can we ever produce much fruit. We cannot bear fruit without God’s assistance. His path and His Word is the one true life.
