LISTEN: Reflection for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time — Year C

As we look at the state of our country today, we realise that a lot has gone wrong. We are ruled by greed. Those in positions of power often violate that power by taking from the poor and marginalised to fill their own pockets. They rob our grandparents and the disabled of their pension and grant money, taking their lives and pride from them. Given the prevalence of gender-based violence and xenophobia, we are left asking why have we as a society suddenly become so cruel, self-centred and bitter? Why are we so unkind and uncaring towards one another? Who do we consider our neighbour? Have we allowed greed to control us?  How do we begin to live in a way that is in line with God’s desires for us and for those whose lives we impact? The readings today help us to find ways to free ourselves of attachments that hurt us and those around us.
