Sunday, September 24, 2023.

Priesthood Sunday is a special day set aside to honor priesthood in the United States. It is a day to reflect upon and affirm the role of the priesthood in the life of the Church because without the priest, the Mass and the Sacraments could not be offered.

There are many ways to say thank you and show your appreciation for him. In a way this is another “Father’s Day," our spiritual father.

Scripture Insights

Today’s parable from Matthew is notoriously difficult. Some have questioned the landowner’s statement that he can do whatever he likes with his money, as it implies that he may be exploitative if he pleases. The parable seems to focus, however, on the landowner’s generosity by juxtaposing two economies to make a statement about drastic change or complete reversal.

The economies on display are an exchange economy and a gift economy. An exchange economy is based on a tit-for-tat agreement: you know what you will get in exchange for what you give. This economy is generally to the advantage of the owner, centering on cost, price, and profit. Laborers, in exchange for their work, receive wages, but they will only receive what is rightfully earned and rarely more. An exchange economy can be described by the words debt and obligation: laborers owe owns service or toil, and owners are obligated to pay laborers money.

In contrast, a gift economy declines this tit-for-tat calculation to operate by another principle. It goes by unmerited favor or extravagant generosity. Instead of something negotiated or agreed on, it urns calculated exchange into ungrounded magnanimity or, in Christian terminology, grace.

God’s generosity with u should model our interaction with each other. We see this in Paul’s willingness to stop calculating what would benefit him and forego his personal preference, so he can imitate Christ and give to the Philippians.

On Sept. 27th, Catholics around the world remember the life of St. Vincent de Paul, the patron saint of charity.

St. Vincent De Paul was born in southern France in 1581 to a poor family that struggled to make ends meet. De Paul’s intelligence was evident at a young age, and his parents labored to provide him an education. In his first years of instruction, he was taught by the Franciscans. Young de Paul eventually decided that the priesthood would be the best way to achieve his desire for security and respect. De Paul used the money he acquired while working as a tutor to pay for his education at the University of Toulouse, where he studied theology. He was ordained a priest in 1600 at the young age of 19.

Many remember young de Paul to be rough and irritable. De Paul was ashamed of his upbringing and spent the majority of his time surrounding himself with the elite. He was well received among the higher circles because of his intelligence and wit. In 1605, de Paul was travelling by sea when a group of pirates ransacked the ship and captured him. He was auctioned and sold into slavery where he would remain in bondage for the next two years. It was during this time that de Paul’s life began to change. He prayed fervently to God and promised he would dedicate his life to the poor and suffering if he could be set free. During these years of suffering, the Lord reforged de Paul’s heart and made him new. DePaul’s slave master eventually converted to Christianity and set him free. His ambitions for the empty pleasures of the world receded, and his love for God pervaded his soul.

“The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it,“ said St. Vincent de Paul. “We should strive to keep our hearts open to the sufferings and wretchedness of other people, and pray continually that God may grant us that spirit of compassion which is truly the spirit of God.“ From this moment forward, de Paul spent every hour in service to the poor and suffering. De Paul would later become the superior for the Congregation of the Mission, a group of priests that vowed poverty, chastity, and obedience. After pouring out his life in service of everyone he met, de Paul died in Sept. 1660.
