Homily (Reflection) for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday of the Year (A) (20th September, 2020) on the Gospel Is 55:6-9; Ps 144:2-3.8-9.17-18. (R.v. 18); Phil 1:20-24.27; Matt 20:1-16. One man hired a bricklayer and a labourer to work for him. As they were working, the labourer’s eyes were practically on his timepiece right from the time he set his foot on the site. The man who hired them was around almost all the time observing how the work was going. He noticed among other things that sometimes the bricklayer had to do the work of the labourer because he went to look at his timepiece and probably make some calculations and announcements. When the time came for the bricklayer and the labourer to be paid, the man who hired them was confused. As a result, he asked the labourer: “Although I hired you to assist the bricklayer but I do not know what to pay you for. The time you spent on your timepiece seems to be much longer than the time you used to assist the bricklayer. So, do I pay you for assisting the bricklayer or for being a timekeeper since you did more of the work of a timekeeper?” The labourer waited for some time and told him – “Well, you can pay me for either of them or better for both”. Topic: Do your work.
