SUNDAY’S GOSPEL—October 1, 2023 – 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Matthew 21:28–32

The vineyard in the Gospel represents the people of Israel. Jesus tells about a father who asks his two sons to go to work in the vineyard. The first son refuses but changes his mind and goes. The second son agrees but does not follow through. The parable challenges the leaders to follow through like the first son and care for the people—especially the poor and the sick. Your family can learn from this parable to be willing to evaluate your decisions and choices and to follow through on all of your good intentions.

See The Gospel at Home (English and Spanish) for suggested family activities and discussion starters related to this Sunday’s Gospel.
