Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus – “New Wine”: Reflect on our lives more deeply, and ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten us on the gift of faith in Jesus, our Risen Lord, who offers us eternal happiness.  The Spirit enlightens our minds and fills our hearts with Jesus’ Truth and Love.  If we pray more deeply and sincerely, the Spirit’s Peace and Joy will touch us.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 5:33-38

The Pharisees and the scribes said to Jesus, ‘John’s disciples are always fasting and saying prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees, too, but yours go on eating and drinking.’ Jesus replied, ‘Surely you cannot make the bridegroom’s attendants fast while the bridegroom is still with them? But the time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them; then, in those days, they will fast.’

He also told them a parable, ‘No one tears a piece from a new cloak to put it on an old cloak; otherwise, not only will the new one be torn, but the piece taken from the new will not match the old.

‘And nobody puts new wine in old wineskins; otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins and run to waste, and the skins will be ruined. No; new wine must be put in fresh skins.’
