Jesus tells us in today's Gospel, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough. As Father Peter reminded us in this morning's homily, Mercy, the mercy of God in Christ, is the only way for us to possibly make our way through the narrow gate. Only the Mercy who is Christ Jesus our Lord can sneak  us through. He who is the Way, he alone will draw us to the Father, into the Kingdom where we too can become mercy-makers, mercy-sharers.
