Amen. First reading: Philippians 3:7-14 Paul passionately reveals his vocation: to know Christ, to follow Christ and to make Christ known. Gospel reading: Luke 12:32-37 Jesus tells his followers that money and possessions are at the root of so much worry and anxiety and that we should put our trust in God and not in material possessions.
