Today we are again challenged with the stark language of the dangers of being rich and comfortable while indifferent to the needs of the poor. Those of us living in the first world live at a time of great luxury. However, many families struggle to pay their bills and live on the edge week to week and month to month. The Gospel today presents a challenge to those of us who live in comfort not to be deaf to the needs of the less fortunate.
