This morning I was at the 8AM Mass at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs RC Church in Forest Hills, Queens & heard a Homily on “Ecclesiastes” preached. Ir was familiar as “Vanity of Vanities, Everything is Vanity” was the Reading.
With material things, are people really happy? Ir depends on what one’s priorities are. Some people have awfully weird priorities, being Utterly Materialistic.
For without The Church Christ founded, The Catholic Church, and minus Faith, all the Material Goods in the world don’t amount to a hill of beans.
Fr Passenant at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs 8AM Mass, spoke of 1000 Television Channels & put it succinctly, “It’s Mostly Junk.”
For without Faith & Prayer, all is NOTHINGNESS.
