Click here to download and listen to this homily (22 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus tells us the Parable of the Talents. We can learn at least for things from this parable. Act I: Don't burry the talents God has given you. Act II: Develop you natural God-given talents for true excellence. Act III: Do not let fear of failure make the decision not to act. Act IV: Even tragic experiences redeemed by God's love can be a gift through which we can help others. Let us all work at using our unique gifts to give glory God!
Readings: Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31; Psalm 128; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6; Matthew 25:14-30
