Feast of Saint Bernard, Abbot and Doctor of the Church

Gospel Reading: MT 19:23-30

God has made us all wealthy in different ways and in varying degrees. Some through material possessions whilst others through the warmth and love of people in their lives. Every bit is a gift from God and that's precisely what we forget at times.
 
Jesus warns us that the more we lose ourselves to the greed of wealth in this world, the more we lose out on the real wealth in heaven. 
 
Ultimately, he is challenging us to see if we are ready to give up on the ideologies of this world and if we have the courage of accepting Him fearlessly before this whole world. However, this acceptance may at times cost us to go against the people we love or the things we love to do or possess, but it is essentially what will lead us to the riches that will last for all eternity.
