August 4, 2019: Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Preaching for the Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Meghan Clark offers a reflection on wealth and discipleship:
"Luke’s parables about money are ultimately parables about discipleship... The Rich Fool helps us remember that private property is not absolute. The goods of the earth are never really just 'mine' to do with as I please."
