Gospel: Mt 20: 1-16 (The Parable of the Vineyard)

We tend to think of the life of grace like that at times. To suppose ‘well there are the rules, and if you don’t play by the rules you shouldn’t get the reward.’ In a sense because – I think we look at it as though: “if I obey the law of God, I have surrendered something that probably would have made me happy and I would have enjoyed doing. We have to give up all the fun stuff to be good and be holy. And so those people who didn’t give up the fun stuff and got away with something shouldn’t get the reward. While the rest of us have suffered and shouldn’t the world all know about it.”

A Sure Remedy

Run Time: approximately 6 minutes.

Gospel: Jn 1:29-34.

I apologize for the audio problems which are ongoing from last week, but it is still possible to understand the Deacon as he explains what the cause for the spiritual aliments that beset us is and what their surest remedy is-

“We were made and designed for life. We Christians understand that [this desire] is for eternal life. Yet in the business of life we sometimes only live a shadow of a life.”

To Know The Mother

Run Time: approximately 7 minutes. Gospel: Lk 2:16-21.

To know the mother is to learn much of the Child. To see the mother is to see the measure of God’s love. That He consented to be carried and to be born, to be nursed and to be nurtured. To be taught. To be safe guarded. On this feast of Mary, Mother of God, we rejoice in her who is the sign of God’s own love, and of the humility to which He stooped to come into the world as our Savior.
