Homilies: 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C, as preached on Sunday 9 October 2022.

The readings proclaimed were 2 Kings 5:14-17; 2 Timothy 2:8-14; Luke 17:11-19. Today’s psalm is Psalm 97: “The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.”

“There is nothing we can do in response to God’s generous lavishing of gifts upon us except to give thanks and worship. God, being God, loves us so much that he lavishes gifts on us, both individually and corporately, because God loves us, not in any expectation that we must ‘balance the books’ by undertaking some particular action. In any case, nothing we could do would change God in any way – God is God, and is generous as God chooses to be.”
