☦ Orthodox Christianity: An excerpt from a homily on Ancient Faith Ministries

'Tending the Vineyards of Our Lives'
Fr. Philip LeMasters

"I sometimes hear from my students that they think that Jesus Christ was a very nice person who never said anything harsh or critical about anyone. Those who say that are certainly poor students, for the gospels make quite clear that our Lord spoke prophetic words of judgment to those who corrupted the faith of Israel in their quest for worldly power through hypocrisy and self-righteousness. As we interpret the parable in today’s gospel reading, we must recognize that its message applies not only to those of generations long past, but also to us.
