Homilies: 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) as preached during the 5pm Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were 1 Samuel 26:2, 7-9, 12-13, 22-23; 1 Corinthians 15:45-49; Luke 6:27-38.

“Love your enemies? Sounds all but impossible! Yet the heart of today’s Gospel is a call to change the way we live our lives to be more in keeping with God’s way of being – to ‘be merciful as the Father is merciful’, to lavish love, mercy and forgiveness on others as God lavishes the same on us.”
