Gospel text
Mt 19:23-30
Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of heaven."
Gospel's Commentary
Today Jesus astonishes his listeners: "So, who can be saved?" Another equation to solve! Richness itself is not the problem, since God himself provides us with the resources. The problem is the rich man, that is, the one who boasts of his wealth. -And what happens to the "rich man"? His heart only sees material things. And what about the people? He doesn’t see other people ..., and if he sees them, it is only to take advantage of them (he treats them as competitors or suppliers).
