Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time: The Church is the place of "narrow gate" Faith

“Strive to enter through the narrow gate.”

The narrow gate is faith and also the way of faith: prayer, and especially the perfect prayer of the liturgy, the prayer of Jesus Christ Himself.

"One enters into prayer as one enters into liturgy: by the narrow gate of faith. Through the signs of his presence, it is the Face of the Lord that we seek and desire; it is his Word that we want to hear and keep." (CCC 2656)

A most blessed Lord's Day to all of God's holy people!
