Homilies: 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C, as preached on Sunday 25 September 2022.

The readings proclaimed were Amos 6:1, 4-7; 1 Timothy 6:11-16; Luke 16:19-31. Today’s psalm is Psalm 145: “Praise the Lord, my soul!”

“Unlike the rich man we hear about in our Gospel, we are called to use those things God has given us for the sake of those who are at the fringes of society. God’s blessings to us are not solely for our comfort or our aggrandizement, but also for those we find at our gates who have a rightful call on our care, our compassion, and our hospitality.”
