Giving away our prized possessions, whether it be material things or our time and love can be an overwhelming ask. Today we hear the story of a man who knelt before Jesus asking what he needed to do to inherit eternal life and “Jesus says a very difficult thing to the man,” preaches Father Michael. “Jesus told him that he had to take all that he had and give it to the poor. And that was a bit much. He had to go away and let it work in his heart.” Watch Father Michael’s family-friendly reflection where he shares a personal anecdote about his children, a beloved blanket, and how even small acts of sharing have huge impact.
