18th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME -C- July 31, 2022

Ecclesiastes 1: 2; 2:21-23; Ps. 95; Colossians 3: 1-5, 9-11; Luke 12: 13-21

Jude Siciliano, OP


From today’s Ecclesiastes reading:

 

Vanity of vanities, says Quheleth,

vanity of vanities!  All things are vanity!

 

Reflection:

 

Qoheleth is a wake-up call directing our attention away from the ephemeral towards what will last. Here is a mantra we repeat as a daily reminder to avoid greed and practice a simpler life, “I have all that I want, I have all that I need.”  It’s a statement that can stir thanksgiving in our hearts as we offer today’s Eucharist. 

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Have I placed my trust in what is passing and will not sustain me in times of difficulty?

  • What reordering must I do in my priorities to put more balance in my life?
