(a reflection on Mt 7:13)
Narrow is the gate that leads from this world into heaven.
How do we get there?
How do we enter by this narrow gate?
whether we like it or not
(and it helps if we "learn to like it")
this narrow gate is learning from
the many sorrows,
moments of true repentance for wrong-doing,
moments of "victory over self-will"
accepting the will of God
(with its trials and moments of deprivations).
All of this means to walk into the narrow gate.
In this way, we truly attain union with God.
Is not this end worthy of any sacrifice?
Prayer: God, You are my highest Good. No road will be too long if it leads me to You, no sacrifice too hard. Bless and strengthen my good will! Amen.
