Audio: Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time


“Gird your loins and light your lamps
and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding,
ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those servants
whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.”

In his homily for this Sunday, Fr. Stephen Hamilton reflects, along with today’s scripture readings, on our ancestry in the faith and urges us to be vigilant for the Master’s return.
