Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
“The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation.” We do not merely desire, we have inordinate desire driven by fear. We do not merely have ambition, we have selfish ambition in which we can only envision one possible outcome. To escape this trap, we must lean into honesty, trust and thanking God ahead of time.
