Homily for the 26th Sunday

Fr. Joel Homilies

What kind of person are you becoming?

Ordinary Time, 26th Sunday. A recession shows the difference between apparent wealth and real wealth. The Gospel goes deeper, revealing that all wealth is passing away. Then what is truly lasting? At a football game there is a lot more going on than the numbers on the scoreboard. The only thing that truly lasts is the kind of people we are becoming. Every choice we make shapes who we are as people. Small acts add up to habits and character and create who you are as a person. My choices shape me. What really matters is not where you live or what you own or do, but what kind of person you are becoming. (26 Sep 2010)
