Mercy towards others
Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
Our sequential reading of the Gospel according to Luke during this year, has taken us to the passages that we have been hearing for the last couple of Sundays where the Lord urges us to be careful with material goods, to be their master and do not allow them to possess us.
Christians know that material goods are not an end in themselves, but gifts that the Lord gives to us so that they can become an instrument of communion with Him and with one another. Therefore, whether we have plenty or little in this earth, we are always mindful of this fact. Otherwise, material goods are no longer "goods", they become obstacles, barriers to grace, clutter in our heart that do not allow us to experience true love.
