God’s Generosity

09-13-2020

The last chapter of the book of the prophet Isaiah outlines all the spiritual blessings brought about by the new covenant. 1.) All are invited to the new covenant. In the image of abundance of food and drink, freely offered to the hungry and the thirsty. 2.) To attain this, there is a need for Israel to mend their ways, a need for conversion. 3.) The last two verses announced the new exodus, “In joy you shall depart.”

The 2nd reading from Phil. 1:2027 has an independent theme, Paul says, to live is to be with Christ. Because we have all been incorporated to His death and resurrection through our baptism. By virtue of his Apostolic mission, to follow Christ is attaining the enjoyment of the mystical communion between Christ and us. Jesus narrated the parable in the Gospel today: 1.) To answer His opponents who are criticizing Him for favoring the outcast than the respected members of society. 2.) Because there exists an oral tradition that says: “The last shall be first and the first shall be last.” Jesus noticed that the gentiles are being drawn to the church, while the people of Israel are rejecting His message. 3.) Taking off from the previous chapter, 19:30 “Many who are first shall come last, and the last shall come first.” In a reverse order, 20:16 Those who left everything for the sake of the Kingdom can still be last if they persist of looking for a reward and demand it.
