Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
September 24, 2017
Matthew 20: 1-16
The gospel text for last Sunday was the familiar but difficult parable of the servant who had been forgiven a great debt but refused to forgive his fellow servant. (Matthew 18:21-35) In selecting the gospel text for this Sunday, the Church skips over the 19th chapter of Matthew’s gospel and asks us to reflect on the parable that opens chapter 20.

Stewardship Theme for Treasure Pledge Appeal
–St. Matthias Stewardship Committee is pleased to announce the theme for Treasure Pledge appeal:
GRACE – GRATITUDE – GENEROSITY
Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
From an early age, we tend to distort the concept of “fairness”: “I am good. I deserve good things. I am not receiving good things. Something must be wrong. Who’s going to fix it?” We also know the age-old expression: “Who ever said life was fair?” Jesus knew this expression when he offered his parable in today’s Gospel reading. Christian stewards acknowledge, with humility, that they receive good things from the Lord in abundance; even if these gifts are not the ones they think they need when they need them. Consider which servants you identify with most in the Gospel reading, the ones who demand “fairness”, or that final servant who, seemingly, deserves the least.
