Pope Francis in his September 20, 2020, Angelus address explained the Gospel of the day, the story from Matthew 20 of the vineyard owner and the workers.
It is a story that includes controversy. The owners calls workers several times during the day and pays those who have worked only a short time as much as those who worked all day. But the Holy Father points out that it is an example of how God works, continually calling us.
“That owner represents God who calls everyone and calls always, at any hour,” Pope Francis said. “Even today, God acts this way: He continues to call anyone, at whatever hour, to invite them to work in His Kingdom…He continually seeks out people, because He does not want anyone to be excluded from His loving plan.
