Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Fears – Spiritual”: In today’s Gospel, King Herod, was “fearful” when he heard that John the Baptist, whom he killed, has risen from the dead. We can have much power, authority and influence in the secular world, but if we do not live in God’s Love and Ways, we will not have lasting peace in our lives.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Herod the tetrarch had heard about all that was going on; and he was puzzled, because some people were saying that John had risen from the dead, others that Elijah had reappeared, still others that one of the ancient prophets had come back to life.
But Herod said, ‘John? I beheaded him. So who is this I hear such reports about?’ And he was anxious to see him.
