21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

August 22, 2010

THE TEMPTATION OF THE NUMBERS GAME

Jesus is on his way to Jerusalem – the long journey that will eventually lead to his death, when someone asks him this very abstract question:  “Lord, how many will be saved?”

Once again, Jesus puts the focus back on the person asking the question:  strive to enter through the narrow gate.  In other words, you need not be concerned with the “numbers game” – you need only to focus on what you know to do, do it well, and the rest will take care of itself.

But what does it mean to be saved?

What is this narrow gate?

And what does this mean for all those who do not know or have a relationship with Jesus?

Tune in to find out!
