25th SUNDAY (A) September 24, 2017

Isaiah 55: 6-9; Psalm 145; Philippians 1: 20c-24, 27a; Matthew 20: 1-16

By Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.


From today’s Gospel reading:


"Are you envious because I am generous?




In light of the God revealed in this parable we are challenged to act towards others as God has acted towards us. God has passed judgment, paid the laborers their wages – compassion and grace. Now, we are called to do likewise, go into the vineyard and practice generosity of heart towards others, even if we do not think they have earned it.


So we ask ourselves:


  • Can we name one significant time when we received mercy from God?

  • How has that affected how we treat others, particularly those who have offended us?
