HOMILY: Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
Matthew 25: 14-30


Gifts-Given for the Kingdom

Let us do a bit of Q & A here. Let us say you are blessed with P3.6 million pesos! What would you do with that amount of money? If double that amount, P7.2M or five (5) times more, P18.3M is entrusted to you, what will you do with that sum of money?

This Sunday, we reflect on the Parable of the Talents. We are told that a nobleman puts a certain amount of money in the hands of his servants as he prepares to go on a trip. A talent amounted to about six thousand denarii and one denarius was equivalent to a day’s wage. That is quite a lot of money! On this detail, we note the great confidence the master has for all of his three servants as he gives each of them a significant amount of money. Upon his return, the master asks for a reckoning of what these men had done with the money he had entrusted to them. The first two show due diligence and responsibility by doubling the amount that was entrusted to them. The third servant claimed that he was intimidated by the demanding character of the master so he just buried the money in the ground. Hence, the master scolds him and takes the sum back. He tells that servant that he should have profited from what he received or at least tried to do something with it. The servant not only has nothing but is thrown out into the darkness to suffer.
