In this week’s Gospel, Jesus tells the Parable of the Barren Fig Tree. He uses it to explain that all people are important to God. The Lord loves everyone, even those who sin against Him. He offers everyone forgiveness through repentance and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Like the gardener in the parable who offers to nurture and love the fig tree that is barren, so too does Jesus Christ help us to grow and bear fruit using His inexhaustible love, mercy, and patience.
