Envious because I am generous 

September 20, 2020 3:00 am

“‘Are you envious because I am generous?’ Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.” (MT 20: 15-16)

We think that because we were created in God’s image and likeness, we can do the same—create God in our image and likeness. This generates all kinds of schisms, mistakes, confusion, and stresses. We expect God to behave as we do, taking sides and favoring or preferring one more than the other. The only way for us is to learn from Our Lord His ideas, His lifestyle, His priorities, and how He loves. 

“Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.” (Gospel Acclamation)
