What do you do with a barren fig tree?


The Vinedresser and the Fig Tree by James Tissot

There's still time to take a look at the scriptures for this Sunday's liturgy and there's no better way to prepare to hear God's Word than to become familiar with it ahead of time and to spend some time pondering and praying what will be proclaimed at Mass.

Readings and commentary for adults and children can be found at this earlier post.

The painting above depicts the question at the heart of the gospel story: What do you do with a barren fig tree?

Jesus' answer may be more earthy than we might expect - but what does he mean?
