A35: The Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, Year A

Michael Renninger

Father Michael Renninger, Pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Richmond, Virginia, and one of our most popular preachers, takes on the parable of the Wheat and the Weeds from Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43. He tells the story of going to a Broadway show in New York City and judging too soon, thinking that it would be the two-year-old in front of him who ruined the performance rather than the well-groomed middle-schooler behind him. How often do we do that? How often do we judge too soon? And if we choose to take action, the results can be disastrous.
