Seeing your life through the Lens of the Gospel


1.  ‘One’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions,’ says Jesus. What have you found to be more important in life than possessions? What brought this home to you?

2.  Be on your guard against all kinds of greed.’ Perhaps you have seen how greed can lead to trouble in public life, in family life, and in the personal life of individuals. What has helped you to guard against greed? What benefits have you experienced when you were less greedy?

3.  The message of the parable could be summed up as: ‘If you want to give God a laugh, tell him your plans.’ Life takes many unanticipated twists and turns. When have you found that have had to change your plans because of unexpected circumstances? What has helped you to be flexible and resourceful at such times?



 Money Matters

Offertory Collection …………. €1,790


. . Beware, guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own . . Luke 12:15
