Point 2053 was more than I wanted to post here. You can see the whole thing here if you like. Otherwise realize this is only the final two sentences.
2053 – In the three synoptic Gospels, Jesus’ call to the rich young man to follow him, in the obedience of a disciple and in the observance of the Commandments, is joined to the call to poverty and chastity. The evangelical counsels are inseparable from the Commandments. –Catholic Catechism
I know people who would reject that for the sole fact that it is in the Catholic Catechism. Sadly to some it would not even matter that it is true. I sometimes wonder if you can be a Christian and live in America. There are days I do not believe it is possible. The evangelical counsels are inseparable from the Commandments. So how am I able to understand this.
What is the rich man to do?
God continually aligns things so that His Word is forefront in my life. The same story becomes pivotal in multiple ways over many days or even weeks. So amazing.
