32nd Sunday of Year B
Like a father who gives only good things to his children, God wants to provide everything we need. Sin occurs when we fail to trust in his goodness and disobey him, writes Father Hawkswell. (Adobe)

Friends, a connection with God leads to life and flourishing. When we sever that connection, we experience a drought similar to the one in our first reading today. The Lord responds to our needs, so trust in his providence, and he will not abandon you.

Today’s Scriptures highlight two widows and two very important biblical principles: God reveals himself precisely at that moment of our greatest vulnerability and need, and the grace in your life will increase in the measure that you give it away.

For the past several weeks, we have been reading from the extraordinary letter to the Hebrews, the principal theme of which is the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Jesus can be the ultimate bridge-builder between God and us, precisely because in his own person he reconciles divinity and humanity. True God and true man, Christ is true priest.
Friends, Pope Benedict XVI memorably said that the Church does three essential things: it evangelizes, it worships God, and it cares for the poor. This week, the words of Amos the prophet and Jesus’ parable of Lazarus and the rich man are meant to put us on the hook when it comes to the third task. How much do we care for those who are poor? Are we living lives of self-preoccupation and self-indulgence while our own brothers and sisters are suffering and starving at our gate?
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, shares thoughts on preaching pro-life on the 30th Sunday of Year B.

We have modern versions of the Scribes and Pharisees. Today, when some people give to charity, they call for a press conference so that the whole world would know of their generosity. Not so with the followers of Jesus. We are to give in secret and for no other reason but to be of help to a brother or sister, in need.
Nature shows us the way. A well that is unused becomes stagnant. A well from which water is often drawn remains fresh.
If the poor can give out of their meager resources, so much more should the wealthier ones share what they can. Giving is making sacrifices. Only the giver really knows how much sacrifice he is making. And God, who sees the heart.
Jesus calls all of us, would cast all of us in his eternal peace and glory. Our lives are in rehearsal for Christ’s second coming. Lord, may we all be ready. For “many are called but few are chosen”. Lord, help our unbelief.
