Becoming Rich Towards God

H/T: Ancient Faith Radio, Roads From Emmaus Podcast (here)

From a homily given by Fr. Andrew S. Damick on the Parable of the Rich Fool:

“….Even if the parish had a billion dollar endowment that paid all the bills and funded every ministry, I would still need to give. Even if the parish had a staff of multiple clergy ready to serve everyone’s needs, I would still need to serve. Even if this church was completely full to the walls every time we held a church service, I would still need to attend. That’s because giving is a spiritual act and I am the only one who could become rich toward God for me…”
