Poor and rich
September 29 2019 XXVI Sunday of Ordinary Time

Dear brothers and sisters, in the passage from the Gospel of Luke that we will listen to on Sunday, September 29, Jesus warns every man and woman of two risks, among many, they can run. The first is to allow oneself to be so absorbed by earthly life and by the pleasures that one can get from it to forget that we are all "migrants" in this life and traveling to the heavenly homeland ... The second is to "deceive" oneself believing that a lifestyle characterized by the egoistic searching for one's own well-being that makes incapable of seeing the sufferings of the brothers, and of compassion, has no repercussions in the afterlife ... Dear friends let us pray for ourselves and for all our brothers and sisters because with the help of God we succeed in avoiding these pitfalls, but let us also pray for the opulent and carefree Western world. May God gives to it the grace to "see" the suffering of the millions of Lazarus who, afflicted by the wounds of poverty, discrimination and abandonment are knocking at the doors of its "frontiers" begging only for a little bit of justice, compassion and solidarity.
