26th Sunday of the Year, Gospel Reflection with Fr Bill Grimm, 2014 Sept 28
Posted by Fr Nelson MCBS on September 27, 2014
The test of Christian faith is not merely whether or not we are in church on Sunday. Going to church is the renewing of our “yes” to the call of God. But, do we follow through on the promise?
Twenty-Sixth Sunday of the Year (A)
28 ‘What is your opinion? A man had two sons. He went and said to the first, “My boy, go and work in the vineyard today.”
29 He answered, “I will not go,” but afterwards thought better of it and went.
30 The man then went and said the same thing to the second who answered, “Certainly, sir,” but did not go.
31 Which of the two did the father’s will?’ They said, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘In truth I tell you, tax collectors and prostitutes are making their way into the kingdom of God before you.
32 For John came to you, showing the way of uprightness, but you did not believe him, and yet the tax collectors and prostitutes did. Even after seeing that, you refused to think better of it and believe in him.
