18th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 12:13-21 (The Rich Fool)

Audio is unavailable because I lost my voice recorder.

Notes:

Are you rich? What would you do if you won the lottery?

Michael Larson on Press Your Luck. A modern day rich fool who won $100,000 on a game show only to have it stolen from his house.

Frugality – may even that miss the point (maybe to the opposite extreme). Sitting in the grocery store comparing the unit prices of all the different brands. Hmmmm, this brand is 2.3 cents cheaper per oz than the other – still represents an undue value of money.

Money isn’t money. It represents something. What does money mean to you? Power, security, freedom?

St. Francis of Assisi. A man who forsake wealth to take on the life of poverty.

What does it mean to be rich toward God?
