Matthew 21: 33-43, 45-46

In today’s gospel we see Jesus talking about his own suffering and death within a story. He sees himself as the son who was rejected and finally killed. Yet even in such tragedy, he was so tuned into God that he could see God’s hand in it all and say with the psalmist:  It was the lord who did this, and we find it marvelous to behold. Do we have a discerning spirit, developed through prayer and the sacraments, which will help us see the hand of God in our own lives?
