Go through the narrow gate — the only one to heaven

Read Fr. Baldeon's bioWed., Oct. 26, 2011
Fr. Elvio Baldeon
Gospel: Luke 13:22-30 “Strive to enter by the narrow door”

Homily summary: All things work together for the good, for those who love God. We have to see that, even in difficult moments, something good will come from it. When you see someone strong in the faith, they know that in the darkest moment something good is coming.

Evil is a mystery in our lives. But God can make good things from evil. God does not create evil. He turns evil to good. In the Gospel, Jesus says to enter the narrow gate to get to heaven. To do good things is not easy. Take the time to pray, reflect, and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. God knows who we are.

Not just say “I’m sorry”

Jesus Christ says, “Be strong.” Many people believe that even if they are evil, God will forgive them. But we are not sure. We believe God is merciful. But forgiveness comes with responsibility. We need to do good things — not just say, “I’m sorry” at the end of our lives.

May today’s Gospel encourage us to keep fighting; go through the narrow gate. It’s the only gate that leads us to heaven.
