FAITH BOOK

25th SUNDAY (A) September 20, 2020

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:

 

My friend...what if I wish to give this last one the same as you?

Or am I not free to do as I wish with my own money?

Are you envious because I am generous?

Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.

 

Reflection:

 

Each of us stands in need before God. Some are looking for forgiveness; others for healing from past injuries. During these pandemic days some may need courage, perseverance, hope, or relief. We are like the day laborers, we stand in need and hope we are chosen. The One in charge has noticed us and wants to be generous, beyond what we think we should receive. Our best response to God’s generosity is gratitude and the desire to be generous to others in similar need.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • How aware am I of God’s generosity to me in my life?

  • Can I name some gifts I have received from God that I am sure I didn’t earn or deserve?

  • To whom must I be as generous?
