29 Oct Jesus, Lead the Way (Mt 7:13-14) by Mary Ellen Hoffman
“Enter though the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.” ~ Mt 7:13-14 (full readings)
Mary Ellen’s Reflections: These words from Matthew are eye-opening to me. We must never stray from the path of Jesus and always follow His commandments. Then, we are truly free to live the life He wishes for us. And, prayer is the cornerstone for this life. As we are coming to a close of another 40 Days for Life campaign, let us always pray for the unborn and those parents contemplating abortion. May the Holy Spirit guide these souls toward that narrow gate.
