Gospel: Luke 17:26-37
“Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.” (Luke 17:33)
How do you make the most out of your life? We usually relate a very good life with having big amounts of money in the bank, a new house, car, etc. And to have them all, we need to do so many things. Our days then become no different with the days of Noah and Lot – filled with doing this and that trying to meet the demands of each day.
Jesus reminds us that amidst the need to work hard, we should not lose sight of what matters most - that is, our relationship with Him. Even if we have all the material riches in the world, but are not in communion with Christ, we are losing our life.
Mother Mary, Help us each day to look forward to a beautiful and closer relationship with Him.
