Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Readings of the day: RB 6
Mass: Isaiah 55:6-9; Psalm 145; Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a; Matthew 20:1-16a

In Chapter 6 of the Holy Rule, Saint Benedict addresses the importance of cherishing silence in the monastery. We read: “the disciple’s role is to

be silent and listen.” A most fitting prayer for today can be found in the Gospel Acclamation for Mass and Saint Paul’s Letter to the Philippians.

Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.
Grant us the grace to conduct ourselves in a way worthy of the Gospel of Christ.
