Bulletin Shorts for the Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time – 04 October 2020 

Isaiah 5:1-7.  Psalm 80:9, 12, 13-14, 15-16, 19-20.  Philippians 4:6-9.  Matthew 21:33-43.

Belonging in the Kingdom of God. Although the parable today is about who properly oversees the work of the Kingdom of God, we can easily shift the focus to who belongs within it and how must those who belong behave. This includes every one of us. Saint Paul provides this helpful list of suitable actions. Do what is truthful, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and gracious.  He ends with, “Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard.”

  • What truth that needs telling will I speak this week?
  • What just thing will I think and then do?
  • How will I be gracious to those I meet, with those I work, with those with whom I live?
