The Pastor's Desk

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time:  This weekend we read from the 20th Chapter of St. Matthew's gospel where Jesus tells his disciples the parable of the landowners and his workers.  The landowner hires workers at varying times of the day, but pays them each the customary daily wage.  Those laborers who worked more hours understandably exhibit frustration.  The landowner's generosity turns the workers' worldview upside down..  Such is the way it will be in the Kingdom of heaven. Where the last will be first and the first, last.  This is God's new paradigm.  The Kingdom of heaven is not some place in the sky but it is the ways that people relate to one another starting here and now.

Peace and all good things!
