Dear Friend in the Lord,
Obstinacy – Faith: There are those who turned away from God and the Church out of anger, misguided influences, and lured by evil forces. They are desperate, depressed and in the grip of darkness and sinfulness. Hold firmly on to your faith. Storm heaven for God’s Mercy and Light to shine on those who have strayed.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to the people: ‘What comparison, then, can I find for the people of this generation? What are they like? They are like children shouting to one another while they sit in the market place: We played the pipes for you, and you wouldn’t dance; we sang dirges, and you wouldn’t cry.
‘For John the Baptist has come, not eating bread, not drinking wine, and you say, “He is possessed.” The Son of man has come, eating and drinking, and you say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” Yet wisdom is justified by all her children.’
