"the immense road to the kingdom"

How small is the gate,
how narrow the road that leads on to life,
and how few there are that find it!
~Matthew 7:13

God, our Creator,
through your Word
you ask us
to choose the narrow road.

Make us discover
the astounding dimensions
of this road:
it is as broad as your love,
and only the dryness of our hearts
makes it seem narrow to us,
whereas it is
the immense road to the kingdom:
Jesus, your Son,
who lives with you and the Spirit
in the plenitude of the ages.

~Pierre Grilot
