St. Damien

The kingdom of God is not an earthly place.  Entering God's kingdom is achieved by simple unrewarded service to others.  And like the parable suggests we would do well to give up everything we have in this service to earn our place in the kingdom.  

Many saints of the Church given up their lives to uphold their faith.  Read the story on the link of St Damien who died caring for the sick to hold onto the kingdom of God.
