Today’s gospel presents a bitter lesson for the wealthy of this world, especially for those rich people who, like the Pharisees, fulfill their religious du-ties but do not see the starving at their door. We are not told that the rich man was evil, nor that Lazarus was resigned to his lot in life. The two were acquainted, but the difference in their lives on earth meant that each went his separate way at death. The rich man who did not help Lazarus during life, could not be helped by him after death. It was too late; if the rich man’s brothers would not heed God’s prophets, they would not listen to a visitor from the other world. Lazarus, who had been deprived of the most basic necessities, now shares in the banquet of the blessed. What is our reaction to the plight of the world’s poor? Are we like the people Amos castigates in the first reading, who sit in the lap of luxury while our civilization crumbles? The second reading calls on us to renew our dedication to God’s service, enduring in faith and love and witnessing steadfastly to the truth until Christ’s appearing.
