Do I Know you? What a frightening thought, that the master would reject us and deny that he knows us. To think that we would have done our best to live a good life, only to meet him at the narrow door and be denied admission!

Yet many of us think we have it all sussed. Like those in today’s Gospel, we think we are surely safe. But there is a certain complacency in the voices that plead to the master "We once ate and drank in your company; you taught in our streets"-as if it is enough to have a passing acquaintance with Jesus. Those are not the words of someone who really knows the master and deserves to enter his house. We may think we won't be denied eternal salvation because we say our prayers, go to Mass every Sunday, and try our best to live good and holy lives. Wouldn’t it be disappointing after all that if we turned into someone that Christ does not recognise?

There are elements in all our lives that Christ would not recognise. What are the areas in our lives that need to change, in order that he might invite us in?
