First Reading: Ezekiel 18:25-28 Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 25:4-9 Second Reading: Philippians 2:1-11 Gospel: Matthew 21:28-32 We have all heard of the saying “Actions speak louder than words.”  The readings and the Gospel today made me think of this quote.

First Reading: Isaiah 55:6-9 Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 145:2-3,8-9,17-18 Second Reading: Philippians 1:20-24,27 Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16 Today’s Gospel reading was a difficult one to take in, internalize, or even swallow. Jesus, as often, used a parable to get a point across, and many times or sometimes, they are simple enough to understand, perhaps slightly easy to take in, but today’s parable had many questions in it.
