26th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Cycle C

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

26th Sunday Bulletin Insert for September 25, 2022.

Description: Reflection for the 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time asks: What was the rich man’s sin in Luke 16:19-31? What tormented him after he died? Being wealthy is not sinful; what tortured his soul was his decision to not share his wealth with Lazarus while he had the opportunity.

Death is not a closing of life; it’s the opening up of our souls so we become fully alive in God’s love. Death awakens us to the full reality of who God is and all the gifts he has given us and how well – or how poorly – we’ve invested those gifts. Whenever we share the gifts that we’ve received, we’re investing in God’s kingdom. In God’s economy, our investments always pay off very well. We receive more than we give away so that we can share even more!

In the second reading, 1 Timothy 6:11-16, we hear: “Compete well for the faith.” Against whom do we compete? Ourselves! Are you holier today? Are you spiritually stronger because you’ve worked hard at becoming more loving and generous?
