25th Sunday in Ordinary time, 18 Sep 2016

From the Dean’s Desk

Dear Friends,

Today’s Gospel [Luke 16:1-13] poses a very difficult scenario. It seems at first glance that Jesus is praising the dishonest steward for his astuteness. Perhaps this praise is based on self-centred motives on the part of the master in the parable, since the reduction in the amount that the debtors had to pay was indeed an unnecessary excess that the master had placed on them initially. However, when we consider this strange parable as a whole it says something quite deep about our Christian life and the values we attach to it.

24th Sunday in Ordinary time, 11 Sep 2016

From the Dean’s Desk

Today’s liturgy presents to us an entire chapter of Luke’s Gospel [15:1-32].  In its entirety this chapter gives us three parables concerning the mercy of God: all three centering on the joy of having found something or someone who was lost - the lost sheep [vv 4-7], the lost coin [vv8-10] and the lost son [11-32]. One overwhelming characteristic of these three parables is the extraordinary (or perhaps extravagant) joy and celebration that occurs when the object or person is found. As with all parables we need to appreciate the reason for Jesus’ telling of these stories and ask ourselves which of the characters in the parables we associate with best.
