“Jesus said to the chief priests and elders of the people: ‘What is your opinion?
A man had two sons. He came to the first and said, ‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’ He said in reply, ‘I will not,’ but afterwards changed his mind and went.
The man came to the other son and gave the same order. He said in reply, ‘Yes, sir,’ but did not go.
Which of the two did his father’s will?’ They answered, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Amen, I say to you, tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God before you. When John came to you in the way of righteousness, you did not believe him; but tax collectors and prostitutes did. Yet even when you saw that, you did not later change your minds and believe him.”
If you have been in a similar situation, which person were you—the one who did not agree to go but eventually went or the one who responded positively but did not carry out your word?
What kind of spirit does that call you to now?
Heritage word–“We should never say, ‘I can do anything but not this. God does not ask that of me.’ That is the very thing He wants you to do: take hold of it resolutely and see it through . . .”
(Mother Mary Cecilia, 3rd Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
