26th Sunday - A (October 1, 2017)
Last week’s parable was the story of some laborers hired by the landowner to work in his vineyard. This week, the landowner asks his own sons to go to his vineyard.
In the 2nd reading for this Sunday, St. Paul reminds us of the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ who “emptied himself,” became one with us, and by his death of the cross, made us children of God.
Do we see ourselves as hired laborers or God’s children who God offers a share of the Kingdom?
