17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on

Originally delivered on July 25, 1993

Readings: Kings 3:5, 7-12; Romans 8: 28-30; Matthew 13:44-52 or 13:44-46

In this Gospel, we hear the parables about the Kingdom of God.  Specifically we hear about the treasure buried in the field and the man who sold all that he had to buy the field.  We are challenged to see ourselves as the treasures that God so cherishes.  Perhaps we’ve been led to believe that only the great leaders, priests, or others in high positions are treasures.  But in this homily, Fr. Healy invites us to see the important role that each of us plays in carrying out God’s plan.
