Fr Alan gives the homily at New Bedford on Aug 19, 2019 on how ... (include many words from title) : Commenting on today’s readings (Monday of the 20th Week Ordinary Time, Aug 19, 2019), Father Alan draws on the teaching of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe to point out an important truth. What the rich young man lacked was the ability to give himself to God, to hold on to nothing that could impede him from following Christ (Mt 19:16-22).

- Excerpt referenced in the homily is from St. Maximilian's letter to the seminarians of the OFM Conv, dated Feb. 28, 1933, from The Writings of St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, Vol. I, p. 1008 (n. 486). (https://missionimmaculata.com/index.php/mi-resources/62-the-writings-of-st-maximilian-maria-kolbe)
