READINGS for 2006-10-23
For we are his handiwork created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them. ? Ephesians 2:10
I have a tendency to be a control freak. It is important for me to have a sense of schedule and order. When my job calls me to head and organize events, I do it with a specific ?battleplan? of how things should run. Knowing exactly who does what by when gives me security that all will go well. Which is probably why trusting completely in God?s plan for my future is difficult. It becomes especially hard when my own plans don?t work out. I whine and shake my fist, and scream at God, ?Do you have any idea what You?re doing?

RICH IN THE RIGHT SENSE
Today?s Gospel records an incident which became an occasion for Jesus to talk about greed. It was probably a ?favorite? topic of his. In fact, as Peter Kreeft asserts in his book Making Choices, ?If you count all the times Jesus referred to greed for money, you will find that he talked about it more than anything else except the Kingdom of God.? And so it was that Jesus is asked to settle a financial dispute between two brothers. He instead directs the complainant to his own heart. There, in the deepest recesses, we encounter ?the bottom line,? which is no other than God.
St. John Capistran, confessor, pray for us.
