Jesus is many times presented as a nice person: kind, compassionate and a ­gentle shepherd.

Prestige, status, honor, glory, wealth: Are these the things that motivate us? The Scriptures for this coming weekend seek to purify our motivation. In the Gospel, Jesus warns against greed. His parable about the farmer encourages us to store up treasure in heaven rather than on earth.

Marriage is a loaded, contested word these days. Everyone seems to have a different idea on what it is, and what it looks like. The Church teaches that three essential factors of marriage are that it be faithful, fruitful, and forever.

To do that, we need to be martyrs, of a sort.
