#MyMassTakeaway. The world offers us options. But we don't have to take them. Like Jesus in the Gospel, we can see through the world's deceit. The lies, the empty promises. We don't have to settle for the choices that won't satisfy us. . "Should we pay Caesar or no?" . Jesus didn't like those choices. He didn't bite. He didn't play their game. . We don't have to play the game either. When the world sets two ways before us and asks us to pick, we don't have to take those options. . Instead, when we turn to Jesus in prayer, He opens the door for us, just like in the first reading. He opens the door to new choices. To the path He wants us to take. . Choosing Jesus wins the game. It satisfies us beyond our wildest dreams. He makes a new way, where the only ones offered to us seem hopeless. . The world can't tell you what to choose. Choose Jesus today. Choose prayer. Choose the life of radical abandonment to His will. . #MySundayBest. With @rosiehill425
