Homilies: 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) as preached during the 9.30am Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Sirach 33:12-14, 16-19; 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18; Luke 18:9-14.

“Our Gospel today reminds us that our prayer should focus on God and what God is asking of us, and avoid the overuse of the word ‘I’. We are called to recognise that we are called to rely on God and God’s grace in order that our lives might reflect that which God is asking of us – and not presume to place ourselves above God and God’s place in the world.”
