(St. Katharine Drexel)
Jesus said to His disciples, “Children, how hard it is to enter the Kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God.” They were exceedingly astonished and said among themselves, “Then who can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “For men it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.” Mk 10:17-27
What is it that seems so impossible for us, beloved?
We’re just 2-days away from the beginning of Lent. Is there something that I think I really can’t do without? Maybe it’s my morning coffee. Maybe it’s my evening snack. Maybe it’s TV, or chocolate, or even sex.
Try giving it up for a little while and then see if you can get what Jesus was saying about rich people. Well, we’re all rich in some way. Let’s see if we can be poor in just one thing this lent. And give some of our excess to those who have nothing!
Just ask God for help – for ALL things are possible for God!
God bless you, my beloved!
