Wednesday of the Twentieth Week in Ordinary Time

Heavenly Father, and incredible God, help us to know in our soul the love that is better than words and knowledge so that we may not only be like you, but that we may know you in experience just since we know you in faith. Through Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.
  WORD OF THE DAY ...
Ephesians 3:17-19: I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
  Today's Readings ... (August 17, 2011)
Wednesday of the Twentieth Week in Ordinary Time
First Reading: Judges 9:6-15
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 21:2-3,4-5,6-7
Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16
  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 20:1-16)
In Jesus' times manual workers had to wait each day in the marketplace until somebody hired them for a day's job. No work that day typically meant any food on the family table. The manual workers who worked all day and received their payment criticize that the master pays the late afternoon laborers the same pay. The master, undoubtedly, hired them in the late afternoon thus they wouldn't go home payless and starving. God is generous in opening the doors of his kingdom to all who will enter, both those who have labored a life-time for him and those who come at the final hour. While the return is the same, the reason for one's labor can make all the differentiation. Some work only for reward. They will only put as much attempt in as they think they will get back. Others labor out of love and joy for the chance to work and to serve others. The Lord calls his disciples to serve up God and neighbor with kindness and joy. Do you perform your work and duties with happiness and diligence for the Lord's sake? And do you give kindly to others, especially to those who are in need?
