11/19/17 What a Waste: The Burden of Talent

Gifts are given for a purpose.

Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Who you are is God’s gift to you. Who you become is your gift to God. God gives each of us any number of gifts/opportunities/talents in the course of our lives. Each one of these comes with a responsibility. The burden of the gift is that we must all do what we can to invest what God has invested in us.
