Sermons on Spiritual Growth

Bible open to the Psalm

Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time (August 2019)

The movie Finding Nemo came out a few years ago now, but today’s gospel still reminds me of a scene from that movie. Maybe you remember it. It’s where a bunch of hungry seagulls spot some food, and they’re all yelling, ‘mine, mine, mine!’
Well, the rich man that Jesus talks about is a lot like those seagulls. Can’t you just see Him? – there is so much here and it’s all mine!
