DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Evil Spirits – Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus commanded the unclean spirit to leave a possessed man; the powerless devil had to obey.  Let us pray for the wisdom, not to be fearful of any evil spirits.  They are powerless and terrified whenever we invoke the power of Jesus to expel them from our lives.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 4:38-42a

Leaving the synagogue Jesus went to Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother in law was in the grip of a high fever and they asked him to do something for her. Standing over her he rebuked the fever and it left her. And she immediately got up and began to serve them.

At sunset all those who had friends suffering from diseases of one kind or another brought them to him, and laying his hands on each he cured them. Devils too came out of many people, shouting, ‘You are the Son of God.’ But he warned them and would not allow them to speak because they knew that he was the Christ. When daylight came he left the house and made his way to a lonely place.
