Dear Friend in the Lord,
Vigilance – Faith: We are very blessed with the gift of faith that offers Eternal Life of Happiness. However, this precious gift cannot be taken for granted, but must be nurtured to grow and harvest. Fidelity in faith demands much self-sacrifice and single-minded commitment in our love for God.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Luke 13:22-25a, 29-30
Through towns and villages Jesus went teaching, making his way to Jerusalem. Someone said to him, ‘Sir, will there be only a few saved?’ He said to them, ‘Try your hardest to enter by the narrow door, because, I tell you, many will try to enter and will not succeed.
‘Once the master of the house has got up and locked the door, you may find yourself standing outside knocking on the door. And people from east and west, from north and south, will come and sit down at the feast in the kingdom of God.
‘Look, there are those now last who will be first, and those now first who will be last.’
