You cannot serve God and mammon, warns Jesus. "Mammon" is more than money; it is any possession I can "mine." Mammon can give us the illusion that we have an existence apart from God. The poor are blessed because they are less likely to fall into this deception. This homily gives the example of a girl from Peru named Marisol and a couple from St. Mary of the Valley who lost a child. After the Mass they showed Sister Barbara and me a small Seahawk jersey # 3, with a signature and a Bible verse from Russell Wilson with the Bible verse Matthew 6:33.
