Monday, September z3: 8 am Mass: + lrma Malone

We have a tendency to focus on what we ownt what we've earned, and what is ours alone. We forget that all our stuff, and the ability to acquire stuff, originally comes from God. But how much do we have a right to if others don't have enough? Jesus' line from today's gospel struck me: "lf you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours?" Certainly our world's ,"roui.., belong to all humanity. Are we being trustworthy stewards of these resources? Are we aware of how our Use of these resources affects others, especially the poor? The Amos reading reminds us that God observes and remembers how we treat others, particularly those in need. Do you question where your shoes are made, or what the companies in which you hold stock are doing to the environment? Are resources or people being maltreated so you can

have easy access to groceries, clothes, and toys?

We may not have millions to build a school or rescue an orphaned child in a developing nation-but we can adjust our use of God's gifts so others are treated more justly and resources are more widely shared. Ultimately, what we have does "belong to another"-to God and to all of God's Janel Esker sundaybu lleti n @ liguo ri. org children.

solution. No matter what the situation, it's always best to check with the parish office before the event. I hope you get some good pictures. Just be sure to close your eyes in prayer sometimes so you can see what is really going on'

Luke97-9

Haggai

lia; Reverence and courtesy are the issues here. Reverence keeps in mind that what is real about baptism and all the sacraments does not come out in photos. Courtesy notes that other folks are trying to enter into the awe and joy of the mystery, and people trying to take photographs can get in the way or distract. Parishes differ in rules and regulations. Many parishes prohibit the taking of pictures. Certainly taking flash pictures is annoying in a way that taking available-light photos isn't. But even with nonflash pictures, there is the lumbering photographer, trying to get around people and into a good spot. V/eddings call for photos from approved photographers. In most United States cultures, photos at funeral Masses are out of place. However, I know of a 9O-year-old woman who was unable to attend her sister's funeral. She was extremely upset until her niece thought to record it with her phone. The pastor had no problem with this

Since God surely loves the poor, he also loves those who love the poor.

For when one person holds another dear, he also includes in his affection anyone who loves or serves the one he loves. That is why we hope that God will love us for the sake of the poor. so when we visit the poor and needy, we try to understand the poor ond weok. We sympathise with them so fully that we can echo Paul's words:. I have become oll things to oll men."
