27th Sunday Ordinary

The parable of the landowner whose vineyard was not doing well under the current tenants.  This parable, according to the homilist, has been universal misinterpreted and misapplied to do cruel things to the jewish people.  All of the repressive practices (except the halocaust) that forced the jews to identify themselves have their origin in Canon Law of the church.  As St. Francis of Assisi said, “This ain’t right.  This isn’t showing God’s compassion like it ought.”
