From today’s Gospel Reading Jesus said to the rich man: “You are lacking in one thing. Go sell what you have and give to the poor and you will have riches in heaven; then come, follow me.”
Each of us will have to ask for the gift of wisdom to know how to respond concretely to Jesus’ call to “sell what you have.” Wisdom will help us discern what exterior possession, or interior disposition, we must put aside to follow Jesus and receive life. The story of the rich man makes it clear that even living an upright life is not enough to enter the reign of God – for that we must rely completely on God.
Please join us at Mass as we celebrate this holy season and find ways we can be inspired by Jesus’s love.
