Twenty Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Isaiah 55.6-9; Psalm 145; Philippians 1.20-24, 27; Matthew 20.1-16.

The thoughts and the ways of the Lord do not always correspond to our limited vision and plans. We are invited into the vineyard of God to labour and to build his Kingdom here on earth in the place and with the people to whom he has called us to serve. Let us not work for rewards, but for the joy of serving the Lord in such an awesome endeavour. He has called us through no merit of our own. All is grace, the privilege is gift.  The last place might just provide the best sight-line.

Next Week's Readings: Ezekiel 18.25-28 ; Psalm 25; Philippians 2.1-11; Matthew 21.28-32.
