May 27. The Busisabas  were a well off family, doing their best for their children to make up for their earlier losses when they had really had to scrape the barrel. They had also become faithful church goers. Sheila shared with Adam after Mass how each year when the story came round of the rich young man who was asked to sell everything to follow Jesus she felt very confused. “Do we not have a responsibility to do the best we can for our children?” she asked. “Maybe Jesus is speaking about those he has chosen to follow him as priests or religious. They do take a vow of poverty.” Adam replied. “But at the same time we have learned to value what we have and are willing to share.  Maybe we could consider sponsoring one young person through university or research what is really most useful at this time.” 

Reflect, share, scripture: Jesus said,  “Sell what you have and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God ” Mark 10:17-27  Pope Francis:  A path  of productive development which is creative and well directed could correct the disparity between excessive technological investment in consumption and insufficient invest in resolving urgent problem facing the human family. A technological and economic development which does not leave in its wake a better world and an integrally higher quality of life cannot be considered progress ls 192-4    ACTION.Pursue your consideration about sustainable management of wealth and decide on a possible action plant. .
