Rewriting the Gospel

Rewriting the Gospel of the day (Mt 7: 21 ff)
Jesus said to his disciples, "Not every who says to me, 'Abba Father' or 'Alleluia, Praise the Lord' will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who seeks to discern the will of my Father in heaven and is courageous to live it.  Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not preach in your name? Did we not build so many institutions for the poor in your name?  Did we not spend years in the formation houses preparing your priests for your sake?' Then I will declare to them solemnly, 'You never knew me... leave alone try to know me. I never knew you.'
