From Today's Readings:

October 21, 2019 - Monday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time

Alleluia MT 5:3

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Blessed are the poor in spirit;
for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.


“Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself

but is not rich in what matters to God."  LK 12:13-21 


Spiritual poverty is what Catholic Men Chicago Southland is all about. Because having Christ the center of a man’s life matters.  It is really something to own the material possessions that we are able to in this country, and still have dependence on God!

The poor in spirit, in the Old Testament, are those who are without material possessions and whose confidence is in God.

Generations before us, including the founding fathers of our country, made sure that we have a belief system from one generation to the next. We are responsible for the Souls of this generation.

With modern technology, word can spread throughout the world in a matter of seconds. There are ways to use the internet to spread the Gospel like this mailing list, but nothing replaces a personal invitation and to walk with another man as they become a disciple of Jesus.

This is what the Bishop Perry’s Catholic Chicago Men’s Forum is for, to invite and to share this spiritual journey with other men, and learn to be rich in what matters to God.

Thanks for Reading.

Make it a great week. See you in your inbox again next Monday.

The simple things are what matters

Life can get complicated with our fancy cars and $4 lattes.

We have to strive to stay above the noise.

It's in the simple things, and moments in time, that make the greatest impact on our lives.

Learn from the poor about how to enjoy life in the moment.

The simple things are what matters.
