Commentary on the Gospel of
I, perhaps all of us, know a couple who decided not to have children and to save money and deposit in the bank so that they can live well in the old age. There are many who save everything for themselves. Today we find many who depend upon the bank balance and the business they have to live in the future. They never think of their ‘life’ but only of the ‘investments’. Today with the help of the parable of the rich fool Jesus invites us to reflect on the life that we live and for whom are we accumulating wealth. And he summarizes the story by saying ‘this is the lot of those who store wealth for themselves and not for God’. What does it profit if we gain the whole world and loos the soul?
