Questions for Reflection

  • Do you find it hard to oray for only what is sufficient? Why or why not?
  • Jesus says, “ Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Do you think that sometimes our treasure guides our heart and not the other way around?
  • What are some ways you could seek the kingdom of God in your own life right now?

Text from Traditional Latin text

Sung in Latin ~ Translation: 

Where there is charity and love
God is there
The love of Christ has gathered us together
Let us rejoice and be glad in it
Let us revere and love the living God
And from a sincere heart, let us love one another
