03-04-19 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 4, 2019
Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the Kingdom of God!”  Mk_10:17-27

Those who are self-sufficient, those who are wealthy, those who believe they have no need for God, will never find Him.  It is when we are in need that we truly learn to depend on God.  When we discover for ourselves that God will truly provide for us, even when we are in dire straits, then we become like those children whom Jesus said will inherit God’s Kingdom.  It doesn’t mean that we have to be poor.  It doesn’t mean that we have to be dying or hurt or depressed.  But it does mean that sometimes that is what it takes to kick us back to remembering our dependence on God.  And that dependence leads to love.  Love of God, then love of our neighbor.  Recognizing our imperfections and depending on others to help us in our need.  And then helping them with their needs.  This is the love that God wants us to have.  And sometimes it’s really hard to recognize when we feel we are in total control of everything – when we’re too overly “rich.”
