The parable of the talents
Father Seaver, this is profound. I savored the layers of meaning you laid down for your readers' sustenance. Crucified with Christ is my fear and reticence to live fully for the living Lord, and springing up to life more faithful stewardship of the talent entrusted to me. Thank you.
A fine examination of the many layers of this parable and its connections with the rest of the scriptural narrative.
