Monica talked with her daughter about Jesus Christ as being the Door through which we can enter heaven. Her daughter asked, “What do you mean by these words?”

Monica answered, “If we go to visit Sandy, your friend, and find on the door a note saying, 'Don't ring the bell, come in through the side door,' what should we do?”

Her daughter answered that they should follow the instructions and go through the side door. Monica said, “Jesus Christ declared to us that He is the Door and that anyone who wants to go to heaven should go through Him.”

 Monica continued, “If in the middle of the night, we find a person using a ladder to reach the window of the upper floor. When we ask him what he is doing he would say, 'I’d like to visit you.' What should we do then?”

 The daughter replied, “We should call the police to save us because the reason of his visit is clear, since a visitor comes through the door not the window.”

 If we would like to go into heaven we should go through the Door which is Jesus Christ and not through the window.

My Lord Jesus Christ,

You are the Door who can take me to the bosom of Your Father.

You are the Only One who can take us there to find happiness in Heaven.

And without You, we have no share in it.
