highlight three different subjects of our Catholic faith each week.)


This Gospel challenges the complacent, those who presume that things are good
enough between themselves and God, to examine the integrity of their discipleship.
To the father’s command to go out and work in the vineyard, the first son replies 
literally in the Greek, “I don’t want to ,” but later changes his mind and goes.
The second assents to go work but carries on with his usual routine.

The parable reinforces Jesus’ insistence that words alone do not prove that one is his disciple.
They must be accompanied by actions.

Jesus’ parable is open ended, which son are you?
