Once again Jesus tries to hammer home that lesson: to enter the Kingdom we must stop promoting ourselves and become like little children. St Therese of Lisieux is our great teacher in this respect. Her "little way" is a simple and transparent means of abandoning ourselves into the arms of our heavenly Father on a day to day basis.
Jesus' words might sound very harsh today. What does he mean that we should be ready to lose an eye, hand or foot in order to enter into heaven? There is much in the way we see things (eye), the way we do things (hand), and the paths that we follow (foot) that need to be cut off if we are to enter into life, into communion with God and others.
