|Fig Trees, Antibes Guy Rose (1867-1925)|
It is this parable that connects the Gospel with the other readings, which, in one way or another, all have to do with food and drink. The emphasis, though, is on true nourishment and refreshment, contrasted with what might better suit our tastes.'Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy'. Isaiah asks. 'Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price'
