Go for the genuine riches.

"Jesus said to his disciples: “...... The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones. If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth?
...... No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”  (Luke 16: 9.... 15).

Saturday 6th November 2021, in the 31st Week in Ordinary Time is the First Saturday in November. We celebrate the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Gospel today shouts one clear lesson:
We are stewards of God's Time, Talent and Treasure.
The conclusion of Jesus is simple to understand:
“I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth, so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings."
Invest part of your money in spiritual and corporal works of mercy. Contribute to missionary endeavors, distribute Bibles and Rosaries. Sponsor seminarians.

When you arrive at the gate of Heaven after your death, there will be a crowd to welcome you. "Without you, I wouldn't have been a priest, a Christian, a missionary, etc."

You will find that "dishonest wealth" has procured your salvation. This is taught St John Chrysostom, St Ambrose and other teachers.

"Blessed is the womb of the Virgin Mary, which bore the Son of the eternal Father." (Communion Antiphon Cf. Luke 11: 27).

"Above all there is My Holy Mother, My all-beautiful and Immaculate Mother Mary. She is where I am. She is close to the priest who is close to Me in the Sacrament of My love. Nothing gives so much joy to her Immaculate Heart as seeing one of her priest sons in adoration before My Eucharistic Face. She opens her hands over him—as she is doing over you at this very moment—and causes a shower of graces to fall into his soul. Love My Mother, love My Mother more and more. You will never approach the love of My own Heart for her by yourself, but I, by My free gift, can and will unite you to the love of My Sacred Heart for her. Thus will you come to experience the ineffable union of our two Hearts in your own heart."  (Thursday, April 24, 2008).
