This Week in Catholic Liturgy: It's A Crop Shoot

In the first reading from Isaiah, a fabled vineyard owner is disturbed about a bad yield.  While the Lord is not content for His people to produce anything less than the best that He has intended, He will prune as often and as deeply as necessary to make it so.

On Respect Life Sunday we recognize that God has looked for judgment and justice, but has seen bloodshed and outcry--and this across the board of human affairs.   Let us not allow God's patience to salve our consciences into inactivity.
