Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

"You are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing." We were created to be witnesses to something breathtakingly wonderful. That is our purpose, no more, no less. Most of the time, however, we choose to ignore that purpose. Driven by ego and fear, we busy ourselves with the drama of human civilization. We mistake survival for meaning, then must denigrate the truth, because otherwise our extraordinary efforts would appear as foolish as they really are. Fortunately for us, grace never stops calling, so it is never too late to choose "the better part."
