Today in the Gospel we have the story of the rich young man, who couldn’t get away from the wealth. This is one of the saddest stories in the Gospel. A man whom Jesus loves rejects His invitation to discipleship. When the man asks “what must I do to receive eternal life?” he does not realize that a call to discipleship would mean so much sacrifice.
The Eucharist which we now celebrate is the same Christ’s invitation for us to the discipleship as this was 2000 years ago to a young man. Now this invitation is directed to us. We have to respond to this question by our good words and especially deeds.

One Main Point
“Good Master, what must I do to receive eternal life?” “Come and follow me…” It may be difficult for men, but “…all things are possible with God.”
- I examine my current life: my wealth (be it rich or poor), my health (be it well or sick), my behaviors. Which helps me be closer to God? Which keeps me away from Him?
- Jesus’ teachings are demanding and challenging. I ask that He look upon me with love, so that I can trust Him like a child upon his parent, to trust that “all things are possible with God.”
