Everyone who has given up 

August 16, 2016 6:00 am


“And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more, and will inherit eternal life.” (MT 19: 29) 

It is not about houses or family members, it is about my ability to be a gift of self, not a possessor. Because it is not about possessing, it is about relationships. When our sacrifice is based on “His name,” we will receive “a hundred times more” good relationships and “will inherit eternal life.” Eternal life is simple, it is to be with Him forever.

“Jesus Christ became poor although he was rich so that by his poverty you might become rich.” (Gospel Acclamation)
