23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Published on Sep 7th, 2019 by Parish Office | 0

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

The good news is that we can afford the cost of discipleship. The bad news is that we often try to bargain our way down, look for the loophole, negotiate a lesser price. Jesus, however, is clear that there is no negotiation, no lesser cost. The cost is everything, giving your life itself to Him.

Many try to give some of themselves to Him while keeping most for other pursuits. These eventually become the non-practicing who give in to society’s values drifting away from Christ.

Jesus today invites us to calculate the cost. Is He worth everything or should we keep other options open? When we consider that all we really want in this life and in the next is what we are buying, the cost is small. God’s gifts are beyond our expectation and the source of true joy, love, peace and prosperi-ty. He is far more than worth the price.

With love,

Fr. Tom
