Dear Friend in the Lord,

Vigilance in Faith:  In the practice of our faith, let us ask ourselves, “Do we take God’s Love for granted”?  If so, we will surely not find the deep peace and strength we need to face the different challenges of our lives.  Without God’s Light and Love, trials can become unbearable, we may even lose the gift of eternal life.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 13:23-25, 28-30

Someone said to Jesus, ‘Sir, will there be only a few saved?’ He said to them, ‘Try your hardest to enter by the narrow door, because, I tell you, many will try to enter and will not succeed.

‘Once the master of the house has got up and locked the door, you may find yourself standing outside knocking on the door, saying, “Lord, open to us,” but he will answer, “I do not know where you come from.”

‘Then there will be weeping and grinding of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrown out. And people from east and west, from north and south, will come and sit down at the feast in the kingdom of God.

‘Look, there are those now last who will be first, and those now first who will be last.’
