Homily for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Beloved:
Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist,
there is disorder and every foul practice. 

Where do the wars
and where do the conflicts among you come from?

that make war within your members? 
You covet but do not possess. 
You kill and envy but you cannot obtain;
you fight and wage war.
