Looking at the parable of the Landowner and the Vineyard, I look at how it parallels the many invitations Jesus gives to us to ‘Come, follow me!’
Attached are my recorded remarks for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, delivered at Corpus Christi, where I serve as a pastor. I also make a little announcement towards the end of the Homily. The prayer mentioned follows:
Your Son called us to go to the ends of the Earth to proclaim His Message of Salvation
and to be generous in sowing the seeds of faith among the peoples of the earth.
Be with Fr. Kyle as he undertakes this effort of evangelization;
Let his efforts bear good fruit for the coming of the Kingdom;
Give him the joy that comes from knowing and loving You;
Give him the love that softens hearts to recognize your presence;
May the Church continue to grow and thrive long into the Third Christian Millennium;
We ask all this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
