Saint Monica

Matthew 23:13-22

Before we use this gospel to expose the hypocrisy and inconsistencies in the lives of others, we may miss how these words of Jesus speak to us. Dare we allow Jesus’ words to search the dark corners of our own life of faith? Might we hear Jesus saying “woe” over us? Are we going through the narrow gate,  Jesus, who is challenging us to a deeper relationship with him?
