29th Sunday In Ordinary Time- A place for everything!

But there’s an addition: belonging to God means belonging to each other. We have rights and duties of love. To give to oth¬ers what belongs to others; give to the poor what belongs to the poor. Everyone has a right to the food of the earth and the food of the mind, and shelter for the body. It’s not charity when peo¬ple are given food, education, a home, freedom of religion, free¬dom of speech – it is justice. To give to God what belongs to God is to share the goods of the earth!
Think of a time when you made a decision for the common good –
money given away, cleaning the neighbourhood,
joining a parents’ group etc. Remember and be grateful
Lord, may your will that we share well the goods of the world be done.
Donal Neary SJ
