Message from our Pastor
One of the most important words in the
Gospel passage this Sunday is an adverb
that's easy to overlook, "afterwards,"
indicating an afterthought (Matthew 21:28-
32). The use of the original Greek word,
metanoia, to signify a change of mind occurs only
one other time in the Gospel of Saint
Matthew: in the description of Judas' regret
at betraying Jesus (Matthew 27:3). At the heart of Jesus'
teaching in the Gospel today is His call for our conversion,
for us to change our minds to conform to God's way of
thinking. As Christian disciples, this means that we are
looking to do the will of God the Father, something that we
decide to do, to believe in Him - which requires us to repent,
to stop being stubborn, to be humble.
