26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

We all know of people who promise a lot and do not deliver; maybe each of us is a bit like that. Or the opposite – the grumbler who does the job anyway even if with half-good grace. That is the gospel image today. Jesus prefers the one who does good rather than the one who talks about it. Jesus never looked down on the sinner because many of them believed what he said and did their best to do it. Our prayer moves outwards to give to others, the ‘prayer of the hands’. The sinner is praised for having faith, the prayer of the heart. The test of prayer is in how we love and try to be loving people in our lives.

In this context Pope Francis says: ‘Professing one’s faith in Christ doesn’t stop at words but must be authenticated by concrete choices and gestures, by a life marked by God’s love, a great life, a life with so much love for one’s neighbour’; this is echoing St Ignatius: ‘Love is shown in deeds not words’.

And: “You see that the love John speaks of is not the love of soap operas! No, it is something else. Christian love has a particular quality: concreteness. Christian love is concrete. Jesus Himself, when He speaks of love, speaks to us about concrete things: feeding the hungry, visiting the sick, and many concrete things. Love is concrete.’

Donal Neary SJ, Editor Sacred Heart Messenger

Blessington Tourist Office is holding an Arts & Crafts Mini-Fair  in aid of West Wicklow Cancer Support (WWCS) on Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd October in the Tourist Office from 9am to 5pm each day. Due to the pandemic, the WWCS were not able to organise their usual fundraisers such as coffee mornings, so we have decided to give them a helping hand. Furthermore, with our artists and crafters in mind, we thought that this occasion will increase the footfall into the office or outside (weather permitting) & moreover, wider exposure. The usual 10% that office takes will go to the WWCS & we would also ask for an extra 10% from you as a supporting gesture. There will be a raffle Tickets on sale in the Tourist Office now.

Issue 1323 September 13th 2020

24th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME – 13th September 2020

It is not easy to understand the mind of God. He sees goodness where we see none; he showers blessings where none seem to be deserved. Yet even with our limited vision we can be sure he is near us whenever we call him.

One of the meanings of this parable is that God’s forgiveness is unconditional and amazing. The huge debt is a way for Jesus to say that the forgiveness of the first man was like the forgiveness of God. None of us go through life without needing the forgiveness of God in things big and small. It’s like switching on the light in a dark room, or when an ugly scar heals on the body and we live in light and are beautiful again. The forgiveness is offered on trust: we are to trust that no matter what our past, the present is full of the brightness of forgiveness which flows around the world, as it flowed from Jesus on the cross and in his forgiveness of those who had tortured and killed him.

The forgiveness given is contrasted with the forgiveness refused. The only reason sometimes that we forgive another is to live like Jesus or when we know we are forgiven. C.S. Lewis wrote that ‘everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have something to forgive’ (quoted in M Hogan, Journeying with Matthew).

With the help of Jesus, we must learn to forgive but also to help others to learn to repent and forgive.

Forgive us Lord, and may we forgive each other as you forgive us.

Donal Neary SJ, Editor Sacred Heart Messenger
