Today's Gospel: Mt. 13:47-53

There is a lot of talk about "pastoral" sensitivity these days, and it's not altogether bad. But Jesus comes along and shoots it straight. It's about two things: heaven, and hell. What sort of life do we lead? Do we seek mercy when we need it? Do we give it when others need it?

Jesus alone is Savior and Lord. We can talk about ignorance that is invincible and inculpable until we are green in the face, but it doesn't change this simple fact. More than any other desire, I wish to be found in Him. What do you desire? Do you see things as they are in these simple terms?

Let's keep it simple, and our hearts open, and we will not be thrown outside.
