Dear Parishioners and Friends,                  
God’s Word to us this Sunday is rich in His mercy that He so desires to bestow upon us for the asking. In the Gospel, we may think at first that the landowner is unfair to the labourers who put in a full day’s work. But we should never be jealous because God is so very generous.
