If you think that all the parables Jesus told were nice stories about people of integrity then today’s Gospel might make you think again. The manager has been put on notice by his CEO and he decided to even up the tables, while he still can, for those who are struggling to pay their debts to the company. He is happy to let the debt go and redistribute the finances. The only value the money really has is in the way it is disposed of. Yes, he is a bit of a scoundrel, but Jesus liked scoundrels, once their efforts were put to good use.

During this past year we have seen young people rise up and challenge the governments of the world to take immediate action on climate change. In March 2019, the Global Protest for Climate involved over 1.2 million young people worldwide. Initiated by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, the climate protests shine as a beacon of hope in dark times. Greta stands up to world leaders and calls them to account. She is a modern prophet inspiring millions of young people into political action and challenging all of us to raise our voices for our common home. During this Season of Creation, what can your community do to support these young people? As church, what do we have to say to this powerful movement? The manager in today’s parable invites us to "holy mischief."

"What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? … Doomsday predictions can no longer be met with disdain. We may well be leaving to coiming generations debris, desolation and filth." (Laudate Si’, 160—161)

Suggestion for the week: Explore how you might join with the eco-groups of your community to rejoice in the gift of creation, to share eco-stories and hear other good news of what is already happening. Perhaps you can explore becoming an "eco-parish"? ( and ask young people in your area to help you.
