Infant Jesus, we thank you for this new day, be the ruler of our heart and mind and the master of our home and goods. Fill us with a kind and wise spirit that we may use the gifts, talents, time, and resources you give us for your glory and your kingdom. We make this prayer through Infant Jesus. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 19:11-28)
The parable reveals rather important about how God works his plan and purpose with the human race. Jesus offers us a kingdom of justice, love, and peace and he calls us to live as people of this kingdom everywhere he rules as Lord and Master. Through his atoning death on the cross and through his resurrection conquest, Jesus frees us from a kingdom of darkness where sin and Satan reign. Through the power of the Holy Spirit the Lord gives us liberty to live as his servants and to lay down our lives in loving service of our neighbors. The Lord assigns us with his gifts and graces and he gives us freedom to apply them because we think best. By each gift and talent, the Lord gives enough grace and strength for using them in an appropriate way. As today’s parable of the talents shows, God detests unresponsiveness and an attitude that says it is not worth trying. God respects those who use their talents and gifts for doing well. Those who are truthful with even a little are entrusted /given with more! But those who ignore or squander what God has entrusted /given to them will taken away what they have. There is a significant lesson here for us. No one can stand silent for long in the Christian life. We either get additional or we lose what we have. We either go forward towards God or we slip back. Do we trust in God's gifts to make good use of the gifts and talents he has given us?
