Ten lepers were cleansed — but only one returned to give thanks in this weekend's Gospel.Do we delay our gratitude? If you really mean gratitude, show it, so that one day Jesus can say to us, too: "Stand up and go; your faith has saved you" (Lk 17).
How do we balance discipline and emotion?
27th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Lucas Laborde
My life, my money, my time: Why not?
"God's gift of precious life is no less beautiful when accompanied by sickness or illness, hunger or poverty, mental or physical handicaps, loneliness or old age. At these times, life takes on extra often in and through the weakest of human vessels, God continues to show us the power of His love."Who are the poor around us? How can we really serve them? Is there more than one way?
This weekend's Gospel reading — Luke 16:1-13 — is quite confusing. What does it mean? Fr. Lucas Laborde explains.Here is the full Gospel text:Jesus said to his disciples,"A rich man had a stewardwho was reported to him for squandering his property.He summoned him and said,'What is this I hear about you?Prepare a full account of your stewardship,because you can no longer be my steward.'The steward said to himself, 'What shall I do,now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me?I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.I know what I shall do so that,when I am removed from the stewardship,they may welcome me into their homes.'He called in his master's debtors one by one.To the first he said,'How much do you owe my master?'He replied, 'One hundred measures of olive oil.'He said to him, 'Here is your promissory note.Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.'Then to another the steward said, 'And you, how much do you owe?'He replied, 'One hundred kors of wheat.'The steward said to him, 'Here is your promissory note;write one for eighty.'And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently."For the children of this worldare more prudent in dealing with their own generationthan are the children of light.I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth,so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.The person who is trustworthy in very small mattersis also trustworthy in great ones;and the person who is dishonest in very small mattersis also dishonest in great ones.If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth,who will trust you with true wealth?If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another,who will give you what is yours?No servant can serve two masters.He will either hate one and love the other,or be devoted to one and despise the other.You cannot serve both God and mammon."#DailyGospel
