    In a parable of vineyard workers, Christ shows that all who receive from Him, and all that is received from Him, is totally gift. It is not earned. As Christians we rejoice and are thankful that we are in His vineyard, and that His continues to call others to His vineyard to labor with us.

    Lent 5 (A) The Christ of the resurrection of the Last Day is one and the same Christ who is on the road of life with us now. He will not only bring us out of the grave then, He is on the road to the cemetery with us today, as we face the challenges, the losses, and yes, even the deaths, of today.

    J. J. May the words of my mouth, and the meditations of our hearts, be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer. Amen.
