You can also find the past week's Meditations in the box at right (or below, for mobile users), or search for previous entries on the Archives page.
Luke 12:13-31. You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?
When we spend too much time worrying, Jesus reminds us, we make ourselves bigger than we are and succumb to the illusion that we can control much of anything. We can lie awake at night wondering what tomorrow will bring, and watch our hair turn gray and bags form under our eyes, or we can rest in the knowledge that our hearts are out of our hands.
Today the Church remembers Commemoration of All Faithful Departed.
