Theological scholars are keen to note that only in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus did our Lord put a name on His character. Lazarus is actually Hebrew, a variant of the name Eleazar, meaning God is my help. And our Lord is very clear about the moral of the parable, the poor will dine in the kingdom of God. And for the rich who eats feasts, there will be no second chances. Unless they disrobe their purple garments and actually extend help to the needy, Hades it will be...

The Lord is actually giving us a tip on how to get to heaven : help those who cannot return back the favor. In this way heaven will have no choice, but to give you your proper reward.

And last night, I was approached by a woman asking for alms. I was torn between helping or not... the security guard said that was her job - begging.

Wow! That is exciting, feeding one another. Nobody ever fed me, except perhaps when I was a babe. The three foot fork will be an experience... I think I'd like to go to heaven!

I have never'been wealthy in my life but I am happy so that worth something. Maybe there will be a place in heaven for me a s I have worked all my life in the helping professions medically. I am not Catholic or Jewish but I do believe

Hatley, you are one of the most genuine friends I have here in mylot. I find your life stories honest and pure, frank and candid, with no pretenses, no hypocrisy. And you are not afraid to narrate even if others think they may be faulty. You recall from memory and you relate from the heart. You are so human and yet I know you are an angel, too, to many of us. I am sure God has a special place for you in heaven. I hope I could join you there, too.

Do you think the that all poor will dine in the kingdom of God just because they are poor?

Nope, being poor is not a guarantee of getting a place in heaven. Remember, there are so many poor who are so bad. They steal, they kill, they violate laws and the 10 commandments every way they can.
