Nobody likes to get fired. Wait, that's not absolutely true in the Silicon Valley. But it is true to say that everyone likes to be hired! Getting hired is very affirming. In this Sunday's Gospel Jesus admires a guy who does a lousy job, gets fired, and gives himself a golden parachute on the way out the door. Not only does Jesus admire the guy, but so does his former boss! This Sunday Fr. Ed will explain what it is that Jesus admires about the guy and what the implications are for his followers.
