Jesus says that the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. If the strictest sect in keeping the law cannot enter in, who can? Whose righteousness is enough? Fr. Oldfield preaches on the righteousness that can enter into the Kingdom of Heaven and how all may obtain it in Jesus Christ.
