John Foley, SJ
For the Love of God
Our story is about a rich young man.
Jesus' Way of Wisdom
Amazement is not what Jesus wants and it is never something that does us good.
Inheriting Eternal Life
If you don’t sell everything you have, are you going to hell?
There is more to this story than renunciation of material possessions. Jesus does not tell the man simply to get rid of his possessions: he must sell them and give to the poor.
Leaving Things Behind
Are possessions themselves the difficulty, or is it clinging to them? Or is the problem the inner drive to own and accumulate?
