26th Sunday - C (September 29, 2019)


The rich man does not send his servants to chase Lazarus away from his door.  He does not harass or beat up Lazarus.  He even knows Lazarus’ name.

But he seems so into his fancy clothes and his exotic banquets that he becomes indifferent to Lazarus and his sufferings.

What keeps me from seeing the people around me and what’s going on in their lives?
