From The Friars eLetter: DESTINY

Mt 13:44-46

The Gospel reminds us that our earthly life, which is inherently good, is temporary. 
Jesus speaks of a life that never ends as our destiny. He does not mock or insult the 
good things of this world. He simply rearranges them and places them in their proper 
order. Hence, the person who finds God is filled with so much joy that he sells all that is 
good for that which is better. He is motivated not by disgust for the things of this world 
but by the beauty of his destiny, which is a life free of all that is temporary.
