Fr. James speaking to young adults at Theology on Tap
Letters from a Pastor to His People- August 11, 2019
In response to Peter's question our Lord asks, "Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward whom the master will put in charge of his servants to distribute the food allowance at the proper time?" (Luke 12:32-48). Jesus doesn't give an answer, but continues on with his exhortation to be vigilant.
So, who has been put in charge? Each one of us! We have been put in charge. We know this because of what Jesus says at the beginning of the Gospel: "Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the Kingdom." We have been given the kingdom. We are kings and queens.
