Especially in this otherwise crazy, painful, and distressing year, let us remember that we have a part to play in every Gospel narrative, especially in the parables told by Jesus. We are asked, every day, to enter into the drama of “Life-unfolding,” a life which is always touched by grace. We enter into Life not so that we can build up points and win favor, not to prove to God that we are worthy, but to do the things we do out of love – because that is our part to play, it is our role, it is our calling. What an amazing hope and promise that is! We dare not settle for anything less. Happy Feast of Christ the King!
