How Do You Inherit Heaven?

My Dear People,

No U-hauls In Heaven

“What must I do to inherit everlasting life?”  This is the central question in the Gospel this weekend.  Jesus gives a twofold answer.  First, Our Lord says that we must be obedient to Him in all things beginning with the Ten Commandments, not the 10 “options” as some would have you believe.  Secondly, Jesus states that we must become “detached” from material goods in order to become “re-attached” to spiritual goods. This is why He tells the young man to go and sell all of his life goods, then come and follow.  How hard it is for us to do this.

Peter then inquires, Lord who then can be saved? Jesus tells us that for man, this is impossible; but for God, all things are possible. So it is essential to “let go of our attachment to the things of this world” family, friends, homes, lands, investments, life plan, etc.  After all, there are not any U-HAULS in Heaven.  It all remains here when we die.  And death can happen, any day, any time.  We must be ready today, not tomorrow.  Pray for the grace to stay obedient to Our Lord, and detached from our earthly goods.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark Bozada

May we be good stewards by spending more quiet moments with God. Pledging our service and sacrifice to build up God’s Church here on earth.
