to enter the Kingdom of God

August 20, 2019 6:00 am

“Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God.” (MT 19: 23-24) 

A parable of impossibility. The problem is not only in possession, but in its mentality; “the Kingdom of heaven” is for human beings, not for human possessives. In heaven, we will be, not we will have. We cannot buy heaven.

“Jesus Christ became poor although he was rich so that by his poverty you might become rich.” (Gospel Acclamation)
