Thirty-Third Week in Ordinary Time

In a parable, servants received handsome rewards for making profits with a nobleman’s money entrusted to them. One servant, fearful of losing the nobleman’s gold, hid it to give back later. When Jesus saw the Temple area turned into a marketplace that stole glory from God, He drove the thieving sellers away. A blind man shouted for Jesus from the roadside, ignoring bystanders who told him to stop yelling. A wealthy tax collector named Zacchaeus climbed a tree so that he could see the Lord over the crowd. Jesus noticed, giving sight to the man who longed to see and the assurance of salvation to the repentant sinner. Through God’s grace, we have faith. By keeping it to ourselves, what opportunities have we regrettably lost?
