"Everything is yours!"

Our Founder loved the passage in today's first reading where St Paul assures the Corinthians "Everything belongs to you, Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or the present or the future: all belong to you and you to Christ, and Christ to God." Most of the time, interestingly enough, Alberione cited this when he was referring to new communications technologies.

In the Gospel, though, it hardly seems that "everything is yours": Jesus, preaching along the lakefront, commandeers Simon's boat as if it were really His. (Well, Paul did say that while "everything is yours," you yourself belong to Christ!)

How ready am I to have Jesus preach from "my" boat?
