Dear Friend in the Lord,
Prayer Life: In today’s Gospel, Jesus went to the mountain and prayed the whole night, before choosing His Twelve apostles. Do we pray from the depth of our hearts, with sincerity, reverence and humility to God? If we pray superficially then, our hearts would not be “connected” with God’s Will and blessings.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
SS. Simon and Jude, Apostles
Luke 6:12-13, 17-19
Jesus went onto the mountain to pray; and he spent the whole night in prayer to God. When day came he summoned his disciples and picked out twelve of them; he called them ‘apostles’.
He then came down with them and stopped at a piece of level ground where there was a large gathering of his disciples, with a great crowd of people from all parts of Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon who had come to hear him and to be cured of their diseases. People tormented by unclean spirits were also cured, and everyone in the crowd was trying to touch him because power came out of him that cured them all.
