Tuesday, 20th Wk: “Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of heaven."

“For men this is impossible,
but for God all things are possible.”

Faithful to the witness of Scripture, the Church often addresses her prayer to the "almighty and eternal God" ("omnipotens sempiterne Deus. .."), believing firmly that "nothing will be impossible with God" (Gen 18:14; Lk 1:37; Mt 19:26).
-- CCC 276
