About Today Readings

Autumn Ember Day. Day of penance and prayer.

Genesis 37:3-4, 12-13, 17-28. Remember the marvels the Lord has done – Psalm 104(105):16-21. Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46.

We are entrusted with God’s vineyard

God is trusting us with his vineyard. We are all he has. What does our part of the vineyard look like, or are we the vineyard? Are we the ones sitting close to Jesus as he tells this parable, soaking in every word, or do we find ourselves slightly distant from Jesus, and listening on the periphery? If the vineyard is my responsibility Lord, please help me not to stand too far back. Please help me to be more familiar with your voice, and to be grateful for the trust you have placed in me to care for the vines.
