Lectio Divina for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time RSS
“Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
Are these not the words we hope to hear one day in heaven? After a long life of fighting the good fight to the end, confessing our sins, and surrendering to God so he may use our life for his kingdom, a faithful Christian hopes to hear the words the master in this parable speaks to his faithful servants. Does this make these servants blind and vain followers who just want to please their master and be labeled “good”? If so, their hearts are in the wrong place. But if we know where the graces come from in the first place, what we are seeing in this parable is a constant flow of love and gratitude between the master and servants.
