Friday of the Thirty First Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

How do you want to be remembered by others? As a good person, someone who was humble, someone who was always ready to help and forgive? In different ways we remember those who had some power or authority, and we say for example -- that president was a great man, that bishop was so friendly and down to earth, that priest was there for me when my mother passed away, I have learned so much from that wonderful teacher, or that doctor was so honest with me and helped me to get healthy again. We do talk about others and remember them in a certain way, either in a good way or a bad way. When you read Jesus’ parable from the gospel for today, you might be surprised that “the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.” He didn’t commend him for being dishonest, which is always wrong, but for making up with people he may have mistreated so that after losing his position, he would still have some friends who would remember that he did something good for them. We want to be remembered by others as a good and humble person.
