The Parable of the Talents

Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters, bless.

St. Theohylact (Explanation of St. Matthew, pg 216) gives us a plain explanation of what the talents are and why some were initially entrusted with more and some with less.

Into the vessel I offer to God, He places His gift to me. If it is a small vessel, a small gift; if it is a large vessel, a larger gift. For whether a man be gifted in speech, wealth, the authority of kingship, or any other power or skill, if he desires to benefit not only himself but others as well, he doubles what has been given to him. But he who buries the talent is he who cares only for his own benefit and not for that others, and he is condemned.
- St. Theophylact

May God bless us in multiplying our talents for His glory!

In Christ,
+ Fr. Noah
