18th Sunday Ordinary Time, 4 Aug 2013

Click here to listen to this homily (14 min) given by Fr Thomas Weise. Seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.

"Poverty is the load of some and wealth is the load of others, perhaps the greater one of the two. It may weigh them to perdition (hell). Bear the load of your neighbor's poverty, and let him bear with you the load of your wealth. You lighten your load by lightening his." --St Augustine, bishop of Hippo

Readings: Ecclesiastes 1:2; 2:21-23; Colossians 3:1-5, 9-11; Luke 12:13-21
