Homily from the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

The world sees life as being about winning. And to win is to gain power and influence. If a person wins they get power, and with that power they can re-shape the world as they see fit. But a Christian view of winning is different. Life is not about power, it is about being poured out. Life isn’t about winning, it is about witnessing.
