Today's Reflection

Jesus makes it clear in the parable that he is the Son, sent by the Father, the owner of the vineyard. He would be treated by the tenants – the Jewish leaders – the way they treated the prophets: they seize and kill the Son. But the story does not end there. He will be erected as the cornerstone of the building and the vineyard will be entrusted to somebody else. A new chosen people – the Church – will arise in the place of the Jews. Jesus is the foundation of this great edifice. Anybody who accepts Jesus as the savior is belonging to this new people of God. Our duty as inheritors of God’s favour is not just zealously safeguarding it but to invite others into the kingdom and be at the service of all people.
