Ordinary Time, 23rd Sunday (C) My brothers are counting the cost of marriage. Marriage requires one to put this relationship first, take up one's cross, and surrender 'my' possessions. Discipleship, likewise, calls for a total gift of self. If we begin the process by negotiating how much I'm willing to 'pay', we will find both marriage and discipleship constantly frustrating. If we, on the other hand, are willing to give it all, we will find that the rewards are out of this world!
