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