Word for the Week of September 21
25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Time to sit down with the scriptures and begin to prepare for celebrating the Lord's Day this weekend, the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time. Spend some time with the texts and background material on them and invite your kids to do the same.
This Sunday's familiar gospel story challenges American sensitivities about fairness and justice but the greater challenge in the parable comes from God's generous desire to open his kingdom to all.
The photo above shoes a contemporary scene of workers going into the vineyard... If you were in that photo, would you be heading out to work at dawn, at 9:00 in the morning, at noon, or at 3:00 or 5:00 in the afternoon?
