Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

For us, the “latecomers” may be non-practicing parishioners, non-believers, or notorious sinners welcomed back with “last rites” at “the eleventh
hour.” Often, among “devout” disciples, such 
miracles of grace prompt not thankful prayers but righteous (jealous?) indignation that those “last in” should be treated as “equal to us.” Our standing,—first, last—would be utterly irrelevant. To share life, to share Christ with any fellow-worker at whatever hour would be sheer joy. On the other hand, the parable proposes a secondary, salutary moral: The problem with “eleventh- hour” conversions is that Death sometimes arrives at 10:30! 

Para nosotros, los que llegan tarde pudieran ser los parroquianos que no practican del todo, los no creyentes o los pecadores notorios, todos los cuales son recibidos con “la extremaunción” a última hora. A menudo esos milagros de la gracia no provocan entre los discípulos “devotos” unas oraciones de acción de gracia como debería suceder, sino más bien indignación (¿celos?) porque esos que han llegado a última hora reciben el mismo trato que nosotros. Nuestro lugar – así fuese el primero o el último – sería completamente irrelevante. Compartir la vida, compartir a Cristo con nuestros compañeros de trabajo en cualquier momento sería puro regocijo. Por otra parte, la parábola nos propone una secundaria y beneficiosa moraleja: El problema con las conversiones de última hora ¡es que la Muerte a veces llega a las 10:30!
