Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
September 25, 2016
In last week’s gospel, Jesus told the parable of the shrewd steward who reduced the debt of his master’s debtors. That gospel ends with Jesus telling the disciples “No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and mammon.” (Luke 16:13) In the verses that follow that text, Luke records three short teachings of Jesus. Following those teachings, Jesus tells the parable of the rich man and Lazarus that is the text for this week
Stewardship Theme for Fall Treasure Pledge Appeal
The St. Matthias Stewardship Committee is pleased to announce the theme for the 2016 Fall Treasure Pledge appeal:
GRACE – GRATITUDE – GENEROSITY
In today’s gospel Jesus offers a warning about living selfishly in his parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus. The Rich Man holds sumptuous feasts and dresses in fine clothes. But despite his affluence he does nothing to relieve the painful hunger and debilitating condition of his neighbor Lazarus. He neglects to love his neighbor as he loves himself and is sent to hell for his lifestyle and desire for self-gratification. The Rich Man represents those who spend their money on their own personal pleasures with no regard for sharing their material possessions with the poor and needy in their own neighborhood. Good stewards realize the practical implications of not only loving God, but loving our neighbor as God loves us. Who are the less fortunate in our family, our neighborhood, our workplace, our parish community? How can we share a portion of our own blessings with them?
