St. Bernard: an endless road

Sunday, February 4, 2018
    Commemoration of Gilbert of Sempringham, Founder of the Gilbertine Order, 1189
    When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
    —Luke 18:22 (NIV)
    Theirs is an endless road, a hopeless maze, who seek for goods before they seek for God.
    ... Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153), On Loving God, CCEL, p. 190 (see the book)
    See also Luke 18:22; Matt. 6:19-20; 19:23; Luke 12:16-21, 33-34; 1 Tim. 6:17-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep my eyes on Jesus.
