Today’s Gospel of St. Matthew appears in the first paragraph of the Catechism’s Section Two on The Ten Commandments, “Teacher, what must I do…?” (Catechism, Para. 2052)

Fr. John Anthony Hardon’s writing on the young rich man is one of the best I’ve read, and since I can’t say it better, I’m sharing it with the hope that you’ll notice that, like Jesus, Fr. Hardon doesn’t sugar coat the Commandments (or any part of the Faith) because as disciples, we aren’t here to win popularity contests...no kidding!  We’re here to proclaim the Truth of Christ, which will still be Truth long after we’re gone.
