'TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #138
What is our attitude toward wealth and toward wealthy people? What is a Christian perspective on the use of money?

Amos 6:1a, 4-7. Before he deals with authority (see previous Sunday's first reading), Amos issues a prophetic condemnation of the rich and complacent who are indifferent to the fate of the poor.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (145) 146. In contrast to the “complacent in Zion,” God cares for the poor and the oppressed.

Suggested Common Psalm
Ps (84) 85: Lord, Let Us See Your Kindness

1 Timothy 6:11-16. Practical advice on how the leaders of the Christian community should behave is rooted in theology: We live to God in Jesus Christ.

Luke 16:19-31. The extended parable of the rich man and Lazarus reminds us that some people are so indifferent to the fate of the poor that they will not be persuaded even “if someone should rise from the dead.”
