“The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard (Matthew 20: 1-16)” by Fr. Michael Sparough, S.J.

Fr. Michael shares the Gospel of the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard. This is the one that irritates many of us, because those who worked from the early morning until the late of day received the same pay as the ones who worked only one hour.

The last ones were paid first, so the workers who bore the whole day in the heat, thought they would get more than the daily wage quoted to them. To their shock, they were given the exact same amount. The angrily questioned the owner. He then said that he was not being unjust for they had agreed with his terms. Then he asked them, “Are you envious?”

Jesus is showing another way to look at what is fair and what is God’s Will and Way in order to offer everyone salvation. Unfortunately, we use a measuring stick to what we have done vs. another.
