Then Peter said, “Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?”Luke 12:41
Teach me, Lord Jesus, to be your "faithful and prudent steward" like St. Paul, "the very least" of your Apostles you have called to preach to the Gentiles your "inscrutable riches" (Eph.3:8); forgive me, Lord, when many times in life I take exceptions from your teachings and instructions, having that feeling of entitlement and even privilege.
Help me realize, dear Jesus, this wonderful gift you have given each one of us of being called to reveal and make known to everyone your mystery of love and mercy, kindness and compassion; deepen our faith in proclaiming your good news of salvation to all so that like St. Paul, we may "have the boldness of speech and confidence of access through faith" in you. Amen.
