Geeky Catholic Sunday: Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Reading: Luke 12:13-21

Highlight: "Though one may be rich, one's life does not consist of possessions."

Reflection: This is a message we've all probably heard a thousand times. But are we really living it? Are we really making our relationship with God our highest priority? The things of this world are not evil, but they are only good if they lead us to deeper relationship with Christ. If we ever decide to cut  prayer out of our life - or skip Mass on Sunday - for the sake of something material (like a TV show or a movie, or a football game, or a comic book), then that material thing is not leading us to God. When we die, will it matter that we read that comic book, or saw that movie, or watched that game?

Geeky Quote: Billy: "Oh goodness, look at my wrist. I gotta go." Penny: "But what about your clothes?" Billy: [checks contents of washer] "I don't love these." - Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Prayer: Lord, help me to let go of my attachment to material things, so that I can focus ever more on you. Amen.
