25th Sunday - A (September 24, 2017)
“Go into my vineyard”
The owner of the vineyard offers the same invitation to five group of laborers.
It is the same invitation for those who are ready to work “at dawn.” It is the same invitation for those who are “standing idle in the market place” at 9 o’clock, those who were there at noon, and at 3 o’clock. And finally, with the same words, he invites those who have been “standing idle all day.”
All are invited to labor in the vineyard.
At what hour in my journey of life does God invite me? More importantly, it does not matter what type of laborer I am. What matter is that it is God who offers me the invitation, “Go into my vineyard.”
