Commentary to the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year A –

Fr. Fernando Armellini - http://bibleclaret.org - Homilies, Fri, Nov 17th 2017

The conclusion of the parable is a popular proverb that reflects an easily verifiable fact: wealth tends to accumulate and the rich becomes richer. Invoked in this parable, this saying meant to signify that, with the riches of God’s kingdom, the same thing happens: the community that is generous and attentive to the signs of the times progress and is gaining greater vitality, while those who prefer to withdraw into themselves grow old, lapse and no one will be surprised to see them one day disappear.

First World Day of the Poor - 19 November 2017

Pope Francis on the future of Europe - Activities, Mon, Nov 20th 2017

We are called to build a Europe in which we can meet and engage at every level, much as in the ancient agorá, the main square of the polis.  The latter was not just a marketplace but also the nerve centre of political life, where laws were passed for the common good.  The presence of a temple dominating the square was a reminder that the horizontal dimension of daily life ought never to overlook the transcendent, which invites us to see beyond the ephemeral, the transitory and the provisional.

Does football make the world a better place?

Jim Murphy - Catholic Herald - Activities, Wed, Nov 22nd 2017

Football is infamous for corruption and cheating, but it can also be a powerful force for good. For young boys and girls growing up in the poorest areas of Brazil, Kenya or Liberia, they may not ever become famous footballers, but their love of those and other pursuits – and the lessons they learn while enjoying them in Cafod-funded projects – could be their best hope of surviving and overcoming their troubled childhoods.
