Today’s Gospel:  The gospel story reminds us of what is possible when God’s gifts are used well. God has given us great things. We must not be paralyzed by fear, but we must trust that great things can happen through our efforts. In the parable, those who invest what they have been given all have success. The one who is paralyzed by fear is the one who fails.

 

 

God bless you.   Father James
