"If you praise the works of God, then you will also have to praise yourself, for you too are a work of God. Here is how you can praise yourself yet not be proud. Praise not yourself, but God in you."  ~St. Augustine
One of the themes of this Sunday’s Mass readings is God’s generosity to all those who call upon Him. In the Gospel, Jesus shares the parable of the workers in the vineyard which reminds us of God’s generosity in opening the doors of His kingdom to all who desire entrance, whether they have labored a life-time for him or only at the last hour. What makes the difference is the motivation for one’s labor. For reflection: do I labor only for the reward or out of love and joy for the opportunity to serve others?
