Homilies :: Latin Rite
Friday of the 11th Week in Ordinary Time Download This Homily

2 Corinthians 11:18, 21-30 ;

 Psalm 34:2-7;

Gospel MT 6:19-23


Jesus said to his disciples:
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.

"The lamp of the body is the eye.
If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light;
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness.
And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be."

 

The Real Treasure

 

Once during the persecution against Christians in Rome, the Roman soldiers entered a Church to loot the treasures they believed the church possessed. They asked deacon Laurentius, “Show us the treasures in your church”. Laurentius pointed out at the widows and orphans who were being fed, the sick who were being nursed, the poor whose needs were being supplied, and told, “These are the treasures of the church”.


There is a saying, “Live always thinking of your end times”. It is after death that we are going to enjoy the treasures that we collect during our life. So the question is “Do we collect treasures for heaven or are we collecting them for enjoying here on earth?” A Spanish saying has it, “there are no pockets in a shroud”. Alexander the great asked his ministers to spread his empty hands outward when he would be lying in coffin to point out to the people that “even Alexander the Great was not carrying anything from this world into the next.”


The real treasures that we can deposit in heaven are our good character, moments of prayer, kind actions, and consoling words.
