Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time – 15 November 2020
and World Day of the Poor
Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31. Psalm 128:1-2, 3, 4-5. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6. Matthew 25:14-30.
Talents Given, Talents Returned. One more Kingdom of Heaven parable today. God gives in the great hope that these treasures, these talents, these baptismal charisms will bear fruit. God’s gifts are not for burying or hiding in safety. They are to be risked, to be used for the benefit of both self and others. When that happens, God says: “Well done. Come share my joy.”
- What gifts of God must I unbury and put to use?
- How will I serve God this week by serving another?
- What action will I do that prompts God to say: “Well done”?
