Today as we gather at God’s invitation, we will hear the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. It interprets our first reading’s condemnation of those who hoard their own wealth with vivid imagery. Both passages are about the choices that we can make in this life. As we continue this celebration, may our prayer be for the grace to make the right choices in our own lives.
