Friends of the Rosary:

Pride is a huge sin, so is greed. In last Sunday’s reading (Lk 12:13-21), Jesus Christ warned us about greed. “Take care to guard against all greed, for though one may be rich, one’s life does not consist of possessions.”

And yet we make our life consist of possessions, due to greed or mostly due to fear of the future. We are very scared about the possibility of getting older and having no money.

It’s smart to save money and work hard to obtain money. What isn’t smart is to make money our priority. Essentially, because this way we won’t achieve happiness, joy and peace — which ultimately is everyone’s goal.

Only Jesus Christ makes us joyful. Only Jesus Christ saves us from our dysfunctions, errors, and disgraceful events. As He said, store up treasures in Heaven because these ones do not perish.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
