The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Ezekiel 34:1-11. Psalm 22(23). Matthew 20:1-16.
The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want—Psalm 22(23).
‘The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light.’
The parable of the landowner’s generosity speaks of a God who gives to all who come forward into the vineyard.
No matter if we have been working from dawn, or if we come at the end of the day, the landowner God wants to give what each one needs, not simply what each one wants.
This reflects the nature of the kingdom of heaven. We are reminded of the need to be inclusive within our faith, as we are not in a position to decide who deserves or receives more than anybody else. We need to make room for others consciously.
