The privilege of the mission

Added 22 September 2017 by Bishop Robert Barron

Today's Gospel reading is one of the most confounding. Many people struggle with this parable about the landowner and the workers, but as the old saying goes, where you stumble, that's where you should dig for treasure. The parable offers a powerful reminder to focus on the mission of God's kingdom, not who gets credit for it.

Mass Readings:
Reading 1 - Isaiah 55:6-9
Psalm - Psalm 145:2-18
Reading 2 - Philippians 2:20-27
Gospel - Matthew 20 :1-16
