Laudate pueri Dominum laudate nomen Domini - Ps. 112.1

10 October 2018

Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today is the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time. It begins a period of reflection on the meaning of "riches" for individuals and communities. We read a love song to the spirit of wisdom. The Psalm and Hebrews both continue this meditation on wisdom and the Word of God. Mark personalizes these reflections by the story of a good man who wants only to move closer to eternal life but finds his way blocked by his own success. He walks away sadly from Jesus. The choice could not be clearer but even a good man, recognized as such by Jesus, finds it impossible to uproot himself from his possessions. The lesson is both about the treasure that is Wisdom, that is eternal life, that is Jesus, and the power of our attachment to things that are not eternal. We must choose again and again which path we will make our own.
