Homilies: 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) as preached during the 5pm Saturday evening Mass in St Mary’s Church, Casino (I was visiting my home town on Annual Leave).

The readings proclaimed were Amos 6:1, 4-7; 1 Timothy 6:11-16; Luke 16:19-31.

“Our Gospel reminds us that whatever we’ve been given – wealth, talents, other resources – not for our self-indulgence, but for the welfare of the Lazaruses of the world. When we do that, when we think first of others rather than ourselves, we will find eternal rest in the bosom of Abraham.”
