Today’s Gospel is a reminder of the possibility for everyone through a response to enter the Kingdom of God, the beginning of which here on Earth is the Church. It is a reminder that no matter what riffraff you belong to or what has accumulated in your life, you are still invited. There is only one condition—to see yourself inwardly as you truly are, disagree with this state, and turn to God with supplication in order to rise and walk towards Heaven.
How many of us can say that we are in a state of perfection or can really imagine what it consists of? At best, we experience it as moments of insight. But to live in perfection is a state infinitely far from us. Therefore, it is by fulfilling the other commandments that we can learn to love.
