25th Sunday in Ordinary Time Cycle A 2023 (’05)

Sunday 24th September 2023 (’05) : 25thSUNinORDINARY : A

1. IS55:6-9!

What enables me to discern if myThoughts&Ways are Yahweh’s? &To ensure they are!

2. PS144:2-3, 8-9, 17-18! (Pity this ancient piety-song, so grossly shredded! &Why?)

Great stuff about Yahweh! But, isn’t the point, How will this mind become mine, too?

3. PHIL1:20-24, 27!

TheGreatIntention! How will myWholeLife-become-Christ, nothing more nothing less?

4. MT20:1-16!

This ironic, highly circumstantial story, that challenges everyday expectations! Which character to identify with? In my world, is true generosity envied resented feared?


May myGreatness, root&branch&fruit, beHumility!
May I be Covenant-Kind, &Full-of-Compassion!
May Anger&Fear&Hatred never Camp-in-MyHeart!
May I be Just-in-Myself, &SeekJustice-for-Each!
May I NeverClose-my-Heart to AnyWhoCalls!
May I be Truly-Generous, to Enemies-as-well-as-Friends!
May MyWholeLife-become-Christ, Amen!!
