The Gospel this week picks up where we left off last week.
Let’s take the sons we hear about in the Gospel this week out of the vineyard and put them in a context we can relate to.
The first says, “Yes Lord, I will go to church and I will say my prayers”, but does not help those in need or speak about the importance of God in their life and acts selfishly.
The second has no interest in God and does not go to church because he has never seen the value in it, but takes care of those in need and tries to understand what is true and what is not recognizing that he has much to learn.
Which of these does the Father’s will?
This week we are led into a examination of conscience – one that will undoubtedly cause all of us to pause.
