Homily from the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

“The rich man, he lost Heaven not because he was mean but because he was apathetic: he didn’t love the poor, and God loves the poor. [He lost Heaven] Not because he was cruel, but because he was cynical: there’s nothing worth singing about, there’s nothing worth fighting for, there’s no one worth truly loving. And the question I have to ask myself today is this: is my heart like the rich man’s or is my heart like God’s?”
