Homily: Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time


We find Jesus on the road to Jerusalem when he is stopped by someone complaining that his brother will not share in his inheritance.  Jesus proceeds to warm against greed and makes his case with the parable of the rich man who hoarded all his possessions.  

But there seems to be a deeper meaning to this story.  One that speaks to us today.  One that calls for us to do more with what we have been given. Take a read and see how Eunice Shriver Kennedy and Pope Francis shed light on our true calling to make – noise!!
