“Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, ‘You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.”
- How would you have responded had Jesus said this to you?
- He actually challenges us in the same way.
- What message does he seem to be conveying to you?
Heritage word—“The challenge before us is to discover that divine balance between sharing all that we have and enjoying the gifts of God together with others, in the spirit of loving concern and solidarity.”
(Sister Mary Sujita, 9thSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
