Fr. John GerthTwenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Amos cries out against those who exploit the poor for the sake of extortion and greed. They seek to serve only themselves rather than the Lord. By giving ourselves to God rather than to money, we can truly pray with blameless hands for all those in need, especially the poor whom the Lord will raise up.

Greetings, everyone!
Today’s readings catch us during a time in our nation’s history when more and more people are listening and living the message of the Bible. The first reading begins with Amos saying: “Woe to the complacent in Zion,” and goes on to describe the life of the rich who have everything except concern for their suffering brothers. Similarly, the Gospel is the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. You remember that the Rich Man didn’t even notice the poor beggar Lazarus, and is punished for his sins of omission, not helping a person who needed help." Click here to read Fr. John Gerth's message in its entirety in today's bulletin!
