Check out Chris Findley’s short reflection on Devotion: What Really Matters at the IntegratedCatholicLife.org, reminding us, “Do not love the world or the things in the world” (1 John 2:12).
“Earthly goods are not bad, but they are debased when man sets them up as idols, when he adores them. They are ennobled when they are converted into instruments for good, for just and charitable Christian undertakings. We cannot seek after material goods as if they were a treasure. Our treasure is Christ and all our love and desire must be centered on him.” -St. Josemaria Escriva
