Parable of the Talents

Jesus told his disciples this parable:
"A man going on a journey called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them. To one he gave five talents; to another, two; to a third, one--to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
After a long time the master of those servants came back and settled accounts with them. The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, 'Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more.' His master said to him, 'Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master's joy.'"
Matthew 25:14-15, 19-21

Parable for a capitalist...
not so, says Fr.Ignatius at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Talent during our Lord's time represents currency. However, talent represent our lives, how we reproduce our lives on earth...
