30th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A
“What do I have to do?”
That question reveals an all too common human tendency to discover what is really important and, usually, how little work, effort or energy need be invested. And so, at school we count carefully the number of words in an essay wondering if “the” or “a” counts. In cleaning, we may give a lick and a promise. At work, we make sure at least to cover the bases, believing like Woody Allen that 80% of success is just showing up.
