What does it mean to travel with Jesus toward heaven? It means that we must follow him as he resolutely takes the road to Jerusalem and the passion. This journey will not be graced with self-serving miracles or special preferment as James and John expected. Lack of hospitality and rejection along the way, and a precarious life without human security, were the lot of Jesus on this earth. There is no time to waste on the road to God; we must be willing to give up everything in order to achieve our goal. Even human ties must take a second place to the work of spreading the Good News. The poverty of spirit demanded of the disciple and apostle requires a break with the past and the fixing of our hearts on Christ for life. Jesus demands a more unconditional response to his invitation than that given by Elisha in the first reading, who is called Elijah from his daily work. Christ has liberated us from the law, St. Paul writes to the Galatians, to free us from selfless service to one another. The Spirit will guide us in our loving service, by a way which is above the law because it is the way of love.
