Do you find yourself acting differently when it seems like nobody is watching? I think we all do! It can change everything. How might we be different if we trusted that God sees us with love?
Introduction to this week’s readings
In today’s gospel reading, Jesus tells a vineyard parable, which serves as an image of Israel, the prophets’ mission, and Christ’s death. For Christians, the vineyard also speaks of God’s love poured out in the blood of Christ, given to us for the forgiveness of sin. Grafted onto Christ the vine at baptism, we are nourished with wine and bread so that we may share Christ’s sufferings and know the power of his resurrection.
