Weekly Devotion – November 15th

Jesus teaches His disciples that all good things here on earth must come to an end. Even the world itself is not meant to last forever but only as long as it serves the Lord’s purpose. For this reason we must not become inordinately attached to the things of this earth. Material possessions attract us when we do not have them, but when we do have them they fail to satisfy us. We know neither the day nor the hour of our death. Why then, should we spend so much time on things that do not really matter? The only lasting treasures are those things that money cannot buy.

We pray together: St. Jude, edify my weak human nature to resist unnecessary commodities and subdue all greedy tendencies.
