Gospel Reflection

TWENTY FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (AUGUST 25)

Is 66:18-21 Ps 117:1-2 Heb 12:5-7,11-13 Lk 13:22-30

To the question as to whether there are few who will be saved, Jesus responds by saying: “Try to come in through the narrow door. Many, I tell you, will try to enter and be unable” (Lk 13:24). We enter the world of the spiritual life by humbly recognizing that our effort is a gift of grace and that our response to grace has to lead of to the abnegation of ourselves. For this reason Christ reveals to us that “there are those who are first who will be last, and there are those that are last who will be first” (l. 30). If we want, therefore, to be first in eternal life, we have to pass through suffering, we have to experience the spiritual correction that leads to divine love: “The Lord disciplines those whom he loves; he scourges every son he receives” (Heb 12:6). Why does he reprimand his children? Because he wants to make us sons and daughters without blemish and great in the Kingdom of Heaven. Do we accept the sufferings that life gives us? Do we support the defects of others?

You only live once - Live well


Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first. If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
