As the Lord Jesus calls the rich young man in today's Gospel, so he beckons each one of us to come away with him, to get caught up with him in God's dream for the kingdom. As our Father Peter reminded us in his homily this morning, for each of us responding to that invitation will mean a recognition of our attachments and then a willingness to let go of whatever encumbers us on our way with Jesus. His invitation is ongoing; as is the challenge to surrender everything.
