>Vanity..


>Everything is meaningless, says Ecclesiastes in the first reading.  No amount of money, material gain, fame, beauty can be equated to an inner peace that we all seek.

Indeed, it is vanity that makes us desire that shiny leather purse in the store window, it is vanity that makes us work harder to make more money for that desirable address, that beautiful car, that fancy restaurant, that vacation house in the Pacific, all that luxury.
