+343+ Strive to enter – and bring others with you! (21st Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 21st Sunday. What a terrible feeling to be locked out of a party. How much more terrible when the party is Eternal Life! Our first reading reminds us that Kingdom of God is open to all people everywhere. It’s not an exclusive party, but it isn’t easy to enter. We must strive hard and accept the Discipline of our loving Father. We don’t want to miss out and we don’t want anyone else to miss out either. Strive to enter through the narrow gate – and bring others with you! (25 Aug 2013)
