Well, well, well. I heard something new today. The parable about the servant burying his talents is the hero. Fr. Frank offered that idea, this morning. That servant didn't invest, or even put the money in the bank. That was what the "world" would do. Cultural, societal pressure tells people to save, invest, make money, and more money. But this little guy, went against the grain. He's a counter-cultural hero. He's not interested in the money. He gave back exactly what he was given.
He was punished for not going along with the common thought. Maybe he "offered up" his punishment (that's nun talk for "suck it up.")
Then again...maybe not. Do you think he knew what he was doing?
