Our Families

We pray that today’s families may be accompanied with love, respect and guidance.

Our Families

The often-frenetic rhythm of life that we follow is detrimental to our family life. This is an important problem, because no one—neither we as individuals nor society as a whole—can do without families. This is truer now than ever during the time of crisis that we are living. As Pope Francis says, “families are not a problem, they are first and foremost an opportunity.”

Prayer of the Month – July 2020

Almighty and all Loving God, in the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph you give us a model and example of family life. In return we commend our families and our households to your holy guidance. We commit all to your love and keeping. Fill our homes with your blessings even as you filled the holy House of Nazareth with your presence.

Shine your light upon our families today. Give us strength to overcome the difficulties that we face. Protect us against any and all problems we may encounter in future days. Lord, please bring us together in love and peace as we are meant to be. May the love that binds us only grow stronger as we fulfill the path and desires You have laid out before each of us.

Lord, protect and watch over all families so that in the strength of your grace they may enjoy prosperity, possess the gift of your peace, and bear witness to your goodness, care and guidance. So may each Christian family really become a “little Church” in which love, respect and the guidance of the Holy Spirit abounds. Amen

Official Daily Offering Prayer of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network


Everyone is so busy, and yet inescapably hungering for meaning and fulfilment in their lives.

“DGEMS” has the main purpose of helping our subscribers discover more clearly and experience more deeply these innate human longings. The reflections on the Daily Gospels are deliberately succinct and spiritually challenging. They are also meant to inspire and illuminate our daily experiences through God’s Word.

1st April 2020
20th Anniversary of “DGEMS” Gospel ministry of evangelising God’s Word of Salvation to all peoples.
We hope and pray that you have been enriched in your faith through this ministry.
May you continue to abide in Jesus’ Words of Wisdom, “Make My Word your home and you will indeed by My disciple.”

God bless,
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
