Eighteenth Sunday In Ordinary Time

Our consumer culture thrives on possessions and accumulating more and more things.  It is no wonder we become obsessed with stuff.  We are invited to form a different sort of a relationship with possessions.  This relationship would have regard for what matters in life.  As many have found, giving away things not only lightens to burden on the earth but also helps us achieve our ultimate happiness found in God alone.  Examine whether your treasure is in your possessions.
