Gospel: Matthew 13:44–46
“How would you describe heaven to an innocent child?” – Fr. John Leydon, Columban Missionary
Though we may not fully understand what could heaven be like, somewhere deep in our minds we try to paint our own view of it. But is this “heaven” worth it?
Heaven, as described by Jesus in today’s Gospel, is something that is of great value that one would forgo everything else he has in order to achieve it. These “everything else” could be the worldly things that compromise our faith and hinders us to live a life desirable to the eyes of God.
Let us reflect on things that could be hindering us from living our faith.
