Blast from the Past(or)

 

July 27, 2014

17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

                  Always play the trifecta for a big payout. That is, three weeks in a row of great Parables with huge implications for our lives! (To assuage politically correct sensitivities, be assured that The Blast in no way advocates wagering in any form)With the pearl of great price among the last in this series of three, we are faced with the question of what we most desire in life. Our answer will correspond to our return.  More to it, today's first reading gives us a hint of what this desire could really mean for the human person. When Solomon is asked what he would like the Lord to give him, Solomon requests an 'understanding heart......to distinguish right from wrong.' From this first reading through the Gospel Parables, we are forced to reflect on the direction of our deepest longing: are we self-emptying or are we focused inward? Are we seeking God or are we asserting ourselves? Our culture requires the latter and aggressively demands that we be defined by our desires (often compulsory under the force of law!).  But the readings indicate that our identity is something much greater. May our hopes for health, happiness and peace always stem from who we are as children of God. May our greatest treasure be an understanding heart with which we can know, love and serve God and one another.

 

God Bless you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
