Homilies: 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A

My homily for the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A) as preached during the 5.30 pm Saturday evening Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton. This Sunday also marks Australia Day and the first Sunday of the Word of God.

The readings proclaimed were Isaiah 32:15-18; Romans 12:9-13; Matthew 5:2-12.

“How can we be both authentically Christian and authentically Australian? Allowing the Word of God to permeate our very lives, everything we do, say and are, is a very good first step.”
