26th Sunday - C


Dining Sumptuously

The rich man “dines sumptuously each day.”  Think Thanksgiving (or Lunar New Year for those of Oriental background - Tết cho người Việt).  Imagine dining like that every day.

What if the parable is about each one of us – those who God graces with the feast of the Eucharist?  Every time we celebrate the Eucharist, we dine sumptuously at the banquet of heaven.  And it is God’s only Son who serves us his own Body and Blood. 

Let us not take for granted the sumptuous gift of God’s love. 

Let us not fail to share the gift of God’s love – Jesus in the flesh – with the Lazarus at our door.
