Commentary on the Gospel of
We tend to compare ourselves with others who for us have been lax in their practice of the faith, or who have gone away from the Church. But we have been faithful to our religious duties and obligations, so we expect to be rewarded for following the Lord. Nothing, of course, will be for nothing. But when we think about our life, is our life of discipleship not a reward itself from the Lord? Not all have been gifted with this grace.
