FAITH BOOK

33rd SUNDAY (A) November 15, 2020

Proverbs 31: 10-13, 19-20, 30-31; Psalm 128; I Thess.  5: 1-6; Matthew 25: 14-30

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus told this parable to his disciples:

“A man was going on a journey.  He called in his servants and handed his funds over to them according to each person’s abilities.....

After a long absence, the master of those servants came home and settled accounts with them.”

 

Reflection:

 

Discipleship isn’t a holding back for fear of making a mistake, or looking like a fool. Judging from today’s parable, it requires a spirit of risk and boldness, sometimes in big matters, but mostly in small daily occurrences.  Whatever the “risky business” we use in our service of the Lord, we are encouraged in today’s parable by a Master who trusts his servants to “give it a try” – so that when he returns we will hear him call us “good and faithful servants.”  

 

So, we ask ourselves:  

 

  • Do I treat my faith as something fragile, keeping it close and protected as if it will break if brought out into the open?

  • In my daily life, how venturesome before others am I with my faith?
