09-04-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 4, 2016
(23rd Sunday Ordinary Time, C)
Who can know God’s counsel, or who can conceive what the LORD intends?  For the deliberations of mortals are timid, and unsure are our plans.  For the corruptible body burdens the soul and the earthen shelter weighs down the mind that has many concerns.   Wis_9:13-18b

What, then, is the answer?

Jesus said, “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.”  Lk_14:25-33

Jesus IS God’s counsel.  Through Him we can come to know God and unburden our souls.

Jesus said, “anyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.” ibid

So, beloved, if we want to know God, we need to follow Jesus.  And as both Jesus and the writer of Wisdom said, in order to unburden our souls, we need to let go of everything we’re holding onto in this material life and cling to Jesus, cling to God.  There may be some “cross bearing” involved, but God will provide everything we need both in this material life and in His Kingdom to come.
