Fr. Tim Notes:
Sell everything you own and give the money to the poor? Is this really a requirement of being a Christian? The answer to this question is not as clear as it may seem. What Jesus is doing if you read this weekend’s gospel in context is telling us that the best investment we can make with our funds are those that will pay dividends in the life to come, not something that ‘feathers our own nest’ in the here and now. So let me ask you: Would you want to face Christ as supreme judge having made the last acts of your life ones of selfish concern for your own comfort rather than doing what you could to alleviate the sufferings of someone in need? I wouldn’t think that such a selfish investment will provide the comfort and security we would hope for when measured against our obligation to love God and neighbour.

Thus this Sunday’s Gospel focuses on two basic (and profoundly interrelated) issues: (1) the radical simplicity and poverty to which Christ summons the disciples—and, by extension, every Christian, and (2) preparedness for the end of time, and the coming of the Son of Man. Jesus calls His followers to embrace a life which, by its detachment from earthly possessions and money, already points toward the end of the world and the judgement it will entail—at a date and time that no human being can predict, and for which we must therefore be constantly prepared. The Gospels make it clear that the first focus (poverty and simplicity) is based upon the second (the end is nigh).
