You shut the door to the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor do you allow those who were entering to do so. Matt23
The Lord vehemently denounce the Pharisees and he called them hypocrites. Jesus called
them blind guides. For the Pharisees think of themselves with pride. Without humility,
it is difficult to please the Lord.
Pride is the root of many evil. It is intertwined with vanity, envy and many other works of
the flesh. For pride led to the Fall of humanity. Let us examine ourselves if pride dominates our life. If we have pride, let us pray that the Lord will help us to be purified of this deadly sin.
Hence, we are able to put God at the centre of our lives!
