Father Michael's Weekly Reflection

Weekly Reflection - 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time (2022)

"There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day." (Lk. 16:19)

 

Today is the 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time.  Jesus gives us the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.  The rich man lived for himself.  He passed Lazarus each day but it was as if he didn't exist.  There are many Lazarus in the world today.  Some we see because of material need, others have spiritual misery.

 

We all share a common humanity.  Our ego and technology is a bad combination that isolates us in a virtual world where we can easily neglect those around us.  Matthew 25 confirms that Christ will ask us to give an account of what we have done or not for the least of our brethren.  

 

Questions for Reflection: 

  • Am I able to see Christ in disguise behind the face of every person? 
  • Do I live a certain spiritual poverty where I never seem to have enough? 
  • Am I aware that what is superfluous for me belongs to another?
