In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells a parable of a landowner who employs tenants to maintain his crops. But when the harvest time approaches, the tenants refuse to give up the crops and kill all the messengers the landowner sends to collect his goods. The landowner even sends his own son, but the tenants kill him too.
What crop is so important that the tenants are willing to murder their employer’s own son? Our souls.
It is easy to see the parallel between Jesus’ parable and what happens to the prophets, and later to him. But sometimes we forget this story is not just made up — this battle is still waging today. The devil wants our souls. Our souls are so precious that the devil was willing to kill the Son of God to try to keep them. Jesus sees our souls as so precious that he was willing to suffer and die for them, stripped of all his glory.
We are precious. We are the treasure of God. He is fighting for us. Never forget how important your soul is in the eyes of God.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you…
We also take a look at St. Jude the Apostle and why he is the patron of saint of impossible causes. Join us on the journey as we strive for holiness. We can be saints because that is precisely what God calls us to be.
