Homilies: 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C, as preached during the 9.30am Mass at St Mary’s Church, Dungog.

The readings proclaimed were Amos 8:4-7; 1 Timothy 2:1-8; Luke 16:1-13. Today’s psalm is Psalm 112: “Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor.”

“Money, “that tainted thing”, is a necessary thing in contemporary society. It allows us to feed and clothe ourselves, and to do those things that we might need to do to assist others. Money is also helpful when it comes to furthering the Kingdom of God. Yet when money becomes an end unto itself, we are truly in danger of drifting away from a life that has God at the centre.”
