Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 13:22-30

The narrow gate of which Jesus speaks is the way of limitless love, unconditional forgiveness, sacrificial selflessness; we can only enter by letting go of our control, our pride, our self-absorption, our cynicism. And Jesus promises that anyone willing to struggle through the narrow gate will be welcomed into the eternal dwelling place of our Father.
