Presentation Of The Blessed Virgin Mary

Luke 19:11-28

Jesus’ parable of the talents in Luke’s Gospel reminds us that God has invested in us: he has entrusted to each one of us some talent, some ability, some skill to engage in trade until I return.  Possessing the understanding of a dedicated parent, the empathy that makes a friend a good listener, the patience that enables someone to work with youngsters are all coins that God has given to each one of us to turn into something good and right, something useful and meaningful.
