St. Ignatius

Matthew 13:44-46

Jesus is reminding us that life’s true treasures are discovered by people who faithfully dedicate themselves to their vocation, their everyday duties and responsibilities. But most of us don’t believe that. We keep thinking that the real treasure is out there somewhere, and if we weren’t tied down to this boring job and if we weren’t saddled with these family responsibilities, then we could be free to go look for it.
