Recorded: 8/4/2019 (18th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C)
Gospel Reading: Luke 12:12-21
Location: St. Lawrence Catholic Church and Newman Center at the University of Minnesota
Description: In a world that often measures success by the quality and quantity of one's possessions, we must remember that all material possessions will be of no value when entering the Kingdom. Fr. Philip breaks down the parable of the rich fool from the gospel of Luke, connecting the theme of "possession" to one of St. Paul's writing to the Philippians. Fr. Philip emphasizes the need for "a new orientation of one's life", with Jesus Christ as our sole possession and us as His.
Reflection: What aspects of your life need to be reoriented or adjusted to make Jesus your greatest possession?
