Mt 20:1-16a

Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time


Jesus told his disciples this parable:
“The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner
who went out at dawn to hire laborers for his vineyard.
After agreeing with them for the usual daily wage,
he sent them into his vineyard.
Going out about nine o’clock,
the landowner saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
and he said to them, ‘You too go into my vineyard,
and I will give you what is just.’
So they went off.
And he went out again around noon,
and around three o’clock, and did likewise.
Going out about five o’clock,
the landowner found others standing around, and said to them,
‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’
They answered, ‘Because no one has hired us.’
He said to them, ‘You too go into my vineyard.’
When it was evening the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman,
‘Summon the laborers and give them their pay,
beginning with the last and ending with the first.’
When those who had started about five o’clock came,
each received the usual daily wage.
So when the first came, they thought that they would receive more,
but each of them also got the usual wage.
And on receiving it they grumbled against the landowner, saying,
‘These last ones worked only one hour,
and you have made them equal to us,
who bore the day’s burden and the heat.’
He said to one of them in reply,
‘My friend, I am not cheating you.
Did you not agree with me for the usual daily wage?
Take what is yours and go.
What if I wish to give this last one the same as you?
Or am I not free to do as I wish with my own money?
Are you envious because I am generous?’
Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

  • Words from Fabio


    To understand today’s gospel a little, you must go to the Palestine of the time of Jesus, where the working day began from sunrise, until when the first stars appeared. The day had the Greco-Roman
    style, that is, twelve hours, in four parts, each part consisted of three hours: “la prima” (dawn), “la tertia” (9 am), “la sexta” (twelve o’clock), “la nona” (3 pm) and the end of the day was completed at 6 pm) according to the season. By the way, the Catholic Church took this same schedule as a reference to do the Liturgy of the Hours. This gospel shows us how God takes on the task of calling and inviting each one of us to come and work for Him; but the truth is that each one of us has the last word and that word is: accept or reject the invitation; accepting, it will take us to receive from God what we deserve for that yes, that we give.
    This gospel should also lead us to carry out an examination of conscience, for how many times have we acted like the last workers to receive their salary, that is, being dissatisfied with God’s behavior. Given this, I wonder and I ask you: if you and I were part of the last group that came to work, would we be complaining? The answer is obvious; so let’s leave the Owner of this world do what he wants to do.
