In today’s gospel, Jesus is asked a question we would all like to know the answer to. “Will only a few people be saved?” From the gospel, it sounds that there will be a great number of people in heaven, people coming from the north, south, east, and west. However, we would like a few more details, numbers or percentages.

Jesus said in the Gospel today, “I have come to bring fire to the earth and how I wish it were blazing already.” (Luke 12:49) Jesus has come to bring the kingdom of God to the earth and how he wishes the kingdom of God were already established everywhere on earth. The fire Jesus came to bring is the fire of love, the fire of hope. Bringing fire to the earth, doing anything good, is going to run into the opposition of evil. Jesus said, “There is a baptism I must still receive, and how great is my distress till it is over.”
