Daily Gospel Reflection: Friday of the Second Week in Lent

Friday of the Second Week in Lent 

Gospel: Mt 21:33-43, 45-46 

Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people: "Hear another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a tower. Then he leased it to tenants and went on a journey. When vintage time drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to obtain his produce. But the tenants seized the servants and one they beat, another they killed, and a third they stoned. Again he sent other servants, more numerous than the first ones, but they treated them in the same way. Finally, he sent his son to them, thinking, 'They will respect my son.' But when the tenants saw the son, they said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.' They seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What will the owner of the vineyard do to those tenants when he comes?" They answered him, "He will put those wretched men to a wretched death and lease his vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the proper times." Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures: 

 The stone that the builders rejected
 has become the cornerstone;
 by the Lord has this been done,
 and it is wonderful in our eyes?

Therefore, I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit." When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they knew that he was speaking about them. And although they were attempting to arrest him, they feared the crowds, for they regarded him as a prophet.

Friends, in today’s Gospel, Jesus tells the parable of the tenants. This is one of the most terrible anticipations of the cross. In a final attempt to make his vineyard fruitful, God sent his only begotten Son, but even he was rejected. 

How are we tending the vineyard? We have received so much from God, but are we making the world fruitful? Are we responding to the Lord’s invitation with the works of justice, love, peace, chastity, respect for others? Or are we more or less killing the messengers? 

There are many ways to look at contemporary secularism and relativism. A secularist world is one that has grown intentionally deaf to the voice of the Spirit. St. John Paul II called it “the culture of death.” God, as is his wont, allows us to feel the effects of our sin. 

Okay, but we are never meant to read the Gospel and end up depressed. The Gospel is always Good News. God has not given up on us! He turns the sign of defeat into the sign of victory. The very one whom we reject is the one whom he gives back to us as a source of life.
