The Only One Needed! September 8 2019 XXIII Sunday of Ordinary Time Dear brothers and sisters, in the Gospel’s passage of last Sunday, filled by wonder, we realized that the "effort" that Jesus asks his disciples to enter through the narrow door that leads to life is is the effort not to make any effort at all, but to leave Jesus free to do what he wants in us. Moreover In the passage of the Gospel of Luke that we will listen on Sunday September 8, Jesus clearly explains what it means to leave Him free to act in us: we must be willing to detach ourselves from everything and everyone because He, and He alone, must be the only One needed in our life! Paradoxically enough, only when Jesus is the absolute Lord of our hearts we are really able to love God, our family, our children, our friends, all men and women of the world, all creation.
