St. Athanasius Parish, Reading, MA

18th Sunday in Ordinary Time In our parish school, the Parent-Teacher Organization heard a presentation on helping kids be less materialistic. Before they purchased something new, have kids donate toys, clothes or other items they no longer needed to Goodwill or someone in need. By sharing things that were still useful, kids saw the good they could do and avoided cluttering their rooms with stuff they did not need or use. More surprisingly, some parents said that their kids realized how fortunate they were and it seemed to make them less demanding and less interested in getting more things. Sounds like a lesson in Christian charity, poverty and gratitude all in one! A wise man once said that we never really own our possessions; they own us! We spend so much time and energy acquiring things, taking care of them, protecting them and replacing them that you have to wonder if it is worth it. What is the real cost of owning stuff and is it worth the price? A video game in a child’s room might cost a few hundred dollars. But what about the lack of conversation or spending time with the family—what does that cost? If what I own takes me away from the most important things in my life, don’t I pay a price that is too great? Life is not just about quantity, it’s also about quality. Don’t sacrifice more than you must. Leave enough space and time for the valuable things you cannot see—or buy. ~James Gaffney, © 2010 Karides Lic. to St. George Publishing [email protected]
