HOMILY: Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Matthew 22:15-21

All Belongs to God

Now, we may ask what exactly did Jesus mean when he said “render to Caesar what belongs to Caesar”? (Matthew 22:21) What did Jesus mean by it? It is simply a reminder that although our total commitment should be with our Creator alone, we also have a duty to give society what it asks of us — our cooperation to promoting the common good. We have to trust that God uses people to accomplish His plans, even if these people are of another race, religion, or ideology. In the First Reading (Isaiah 45:1,4-6), the prophet declares that Persian Emperor Cyrus, though pagan, is God’s anointed instrument to liberate the captive people of Israel from the Babylonians and allow them to return from exile! We cannot help but be governed by civil authorities but we can choose to work with them in order to bring about a society where the values of the Kingdom of God are upheld and promoted.
