Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Giving God his due

Today’s Gospel (Mark 12:1-12) offers us the Parable of the Tenant Farmers, clearly symbolizing the mistreatment given to the prophets of old and ultimately the death of Christ.

But this parable is not just an analogy about salvation history, for we too are tenants, living in God’s creation.

Do we give God his due in word and deed, in obedience and loyalty?

Or do we resist, even to the point of attacking God's messengers?

May we keep ourselves open to God throught our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and give him what we owe him.
