25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

September 19, 2011

KNOWING OUR LIMITS

How many of us have ever said, If I were God, I would do things a bit differently.?  If you haven’t before, today’s Gospel may bring about that feeling.  The story of the labourers in the field is one tha challenges our sense of justice.

How many of us ever wonder:

  • Why do wicked seem to prosper and good people suffer?
  • Why are saints ignored while sinners are the cover of magazines?
  • Why do the lazy often receive more reward than the hard-working?

The same sort of questions are also asked throughout the scriptures.

But these questions are always limited, for they are asked from a limited point of view on a limited horizon.

This Sunday we are challenged to recognize the limits of our sight and understanding.
