Homily 25th sunday year c

Click the play button below to listen :. Have you ever lost a job unexpectedly? Companies are bought and sold, downsized due to decreasing sales, or perhaps they just go out of business. What would you do? This situation would most likely take most of your attention and your energy. When you lose your job, you think of little else but of finding another job. He learned that he was about to lose his job. Upon learning this, he immediately sprung into action and came up with a plan to provide for his financial needs. For the steward, losing his job was an even a more dire situation than losing a job is for us today. No, the only options for this man seemed to be hard physical labor or begging.

Jesus tells us in the Gospel today tells us the servant who is trustworthy in small matters is trustworthy in great ones and the servant who cannot be trusted in small matters cannot be trusted in great ones. Most of us know from human experience that this saying is certainly true.

Two Homilies

We have a recording and transcript for the first and the second is a written homily. This beautiful homily builds and builds to the most wonderful conclusion. One is our point of view. A rich man had a steward who was reported to him for squandering his property. And here, all of a sudden, we have another problem. It seems that the rich man is praising a dishonest man and, instead of apologising, he says everybody should be this way. He has been in charge of all the financing of the various debts. And now he will no longer have it. And he calls all the debtors in and he starts giving them wonderful bargains: ten thousand bottles of oil, all this kind of way. If he fires the steward and then calls the police and has him thrown in jail, the people are going to be very unhappy.

FAQ for Homily for 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

This is a peculiar parable. Why is it that we find Jesus at the end praising a dishonest person? What is there about the actions of the crooked steward that Jesus finds good and invites us to imitate? To answer this question we have to be sure that we understand the parable correctly. The manager was certainly dishonest. But it is important that we understand correctly what his actions were, once his dishonesty had been found out. But this is not the case. In the ancient world managers were given their income through commission. His hope was that by giving back to the debtors what was his own, they would recognize his shrewdness and generosity. Then, once he was fired, they might welcome him into their own financial operations.

Jesus tells us in the Gospel today tells us the servant who is trustworthy in small matters is trustworthy in great ones and the servant who cannot be trusted in small matters cannot be trusted in great ones. Most of us know from human experience that this saying is certainly true. Employers tend to put new employees who they think may have some special potential to work in a smaller project to determine some of their abilities before entrusting them with greater responsibilities.

When we meet someone new and enter into friendship with them, usually our inclination is to have smaller engagements with that person until we come to understand that we can trust them to allow that person deeper into our lives and personal affairs.

Jesus, however, is taking this very human reality a step further to explain to us a far more real and more serious kind of trust.

Jesus is using the example of the less-than honest steward to show not that we should be dishonest, but that we should be prudent in our business with the things of this world, and not overly attached to them.

You cannot serve two masters, Jesus declares to his followers. It is enough of an important biblical phrase that it is frequently repeated as a regular antiphon in the cycle of the Liturgy of the Hours , the official prayer of the Church, during Vespers or Evening Prayer. And why does the Church place so much stock in this statement? Most people who read this passage think that Mammon simply refers to money or wealth.

Money or wealth is a very clear part of what Mammon is-or at least what it can be , indeed St. The Church has always interpreted Mammon to mean an undue and inappropriate attachment to the things of this world and the accumulation of those things, whether those things be money and wealth, or our material possessions, or our work, or our hobbies, or our success and the worldly pleasures that come with it.

People can become attached to the things of the world in a way that actually takes away from their relationship with God. People can become addicted to their Hobbies or pleasurable things, and obsessions with things which in and of themselves are not evil can lead to the occasion of sin and to sin itself.

There are all kinds of things that I enjoy which in and of themselves are not sinful- Sports is one example, I am a former radio sportscaster I did this in college , and I love sports, especially this time of the year.

What Jesus is telling us is similar to what St. We cannot take them with us to meet God, they are of no concern to Him. We can choose to serve the things of this world which are passing away and which leave us nothing in the end, or we can choose to serve God and do his work and his will and reap the benefits from doing so that are eternal and will never pass away.
