Homilies: 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) as preached during the 5.30pm Sunday evening Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were Sirach 3:17-20, 28-29; Hebrews 12:18-19, 22-24; Luke 14: 1, 7-14.

“Our readings today are not just a moral lesson on the virtue of humility, but also a challenge to remember that when the Kingdom is brought to fulfilment there will be a great reversal of the status quo. Where will we find ourselves? With the rich and haughty as they are cast down from their thrones? Or with those whom Jesus spent time with?”

This will be my last homily for a month while I am on Annual Leave. The next homily will appear for Sunday 6 October.
