The Symptoms of Vanity (and the Surprising Cure)

“Vanity of vanities! All is vanity!” Okay maybe not everything, but probably more than you thought.

Vanity isn’t just looking the mirror too much (although it could be). Vanity isn’t just too much plastic surgery (although it could be). Vanity is “the inordinate preoccupation with what other people think.”

Fr. Mike suggests we look at our lives a little more closely with this new definition—and to look at Jesus for the solution.
