    Sermon 560 : Parable of the Tenants : 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    The parable of the tenants is an allegory that presents the relationship of Israel to Christ, but more than this it reveals a necessary truth about the spiritual life: that we are "tenants" in regards to the gifts that God has given us, and when we construe our relationship to God's gifts as being that of "owners", rather than "tenants", the consequences can be quite dire.

Oh, Fr. Barron! I could listen to you 24/7, 365 days a year. You make me see better n2 scriptures. In haven't been to church since 7-2009, since mom past on. I have been trying to deal with the way she played out her Suicide mission(not eat,drink, take her meds). She told me: Leave me alone, I want to die. But hearing you speak, makes me want to return. Please take time out for me; respond.

Thank you Father Baron for opening this parable to a new light for me. I have heared it many times over the years but never with so much in depth and detail.

Secularism is life without God. The world has embrace secularism because pride has taken over. Pride and God cannot co-exist. Mankind is running like sheep from the wolves, running from God to secularism. Mankind believes that this world is for their taking, for domination over. I am not of this world because I once was, but no longer. For the world left me wanting more and more. God satisfys all thirst, all hunger, all needs. I am God's trusted servant, humbly, honestly and lovingly.
God Bless

Dear Father Barron,
I had a dream this morning that I had a pile of innumerable sermons to organize and it seemed insurmountable.
I go to sleep listening to your semons but never hear the whole thing so I have to listen to the whole semon later.

Thank you for all the work that you have done to give us all these sermons from so many years and all the teaching that is within each sermon.

With interest,
Celia Higginson
