Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world. - James 1:27

Called to share in our Master’s Joy…
From the very beginning of creation, God has manifested his love, care and concern towards His creation, especially to mankind. God has given man the faculties to become an efficient steward of his creation. God has entrusted to each individual sets of talents and capacities that would help him live life to the fullest and bear fruits for the glory of God. This Sunday’s gospel, Jesus once again, is reminding us of those gifts being entrusted to the care of each of us. Jesus is exhorting all baptized Christians or his followers to use the God-given gifts in the service of God, and to take risks for the sake of the Kingdom of God. These gifts have been seen to include personal abilities or talents, as well as personal wealth. Thus, failure to use one’s gifts, as the parable suggests, will result in judgment.
