Serving the Word: 16th November


Luke 19, 11-28:

“I say to you, “To the one who has will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”


This gospel is a call to always grow in favour of others without resting on our laurels.

It is an invitation to recognise the talents that the Lord has given us and it is also an invitation to thank him for them.

Acknowledging and giving thanks is a way to make the treasure he has placed in us grow and also to enrich all the good that is in us.

And don’t be afraid to take risks. The lazy servant was scolded and punished by his master because he did not want to risk the talent he had received.

The Lord also says to you what he once said to Peter: “Put out into the deep”.

And remember also what Pope Francis tells us: “I prefer a wounded Church to a sick Church”.

A church that trades all the talents that the Lord gives to each of its members for the benefit of others.

Be grateful for the gifts the Lord has given you and make them bear twice as much fruit.

If you lock up your gifts, you will never gain anything and they will never be of any use to others.

Good day to you.
