Lazarus and the rich man

Lazarus and the rich man

Father John Kavanaugh, S.J. penned a volume of homilies for Orbis Press entitled, The Word Engaged: Meditations on the Sunday Scriptures. He included an insightful meditation on Lazarus and the Rich Man, in light of the garment industry, no less true then than today. St. Louis University shares the homily on their website: http://liturgy.slu.edu/26OrdC092516/theword_engaged.html. Taking a few minutes to read this homily is well worth your time.

Fr. Kavanaugh, who died in 1991, was a professor of Philosophy at St. Louis University in St. Louis. His untimely death is a grief for the many people he reached during his lifetime.
