Weekly Newsletter and Reflection

33rd SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME: YEAR A

19TH NOVEMBER 2017

 

The parables of Jesus are timeless. They still speak to us to-day as in to-day’s gospel from Matthew 25:14-30. Those who took risks are not given extra talents; they are praised identically for being good and faithful servants. They are invited to come and share their master’s happiness. The other who played safe, risking nothing for his master, is deprived of his talent and cast out.

The parable reminds us that we have been given much by God. Whatever we invest, the promised reward is to share in the happiness of the master’s kingdom. It is a lovely idea to pursue during this month when our prayers are for those who have died. We pray for them and ourselves, secure in the promise that if we invest in the Kingdom of God, we can look forward to a life that takes us into the fullness of God’s life itself. It is the perfection of anything we could ever hope for.

Fr. Pat Madden
