Dear Friend in the Lord,

Cross – Faith”: No person wants pain.  However, there are different kinds of pain; some are caused by our sinful ways, others are positive “pain” that God allows to help us deepen our love for Him.  Identify your “crosses” and ask Jesus for the wisdom, strength and humility to unite them to His Cross.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 14:27-33

Jesus spoke to the crowd: ‘No one who does not carry his cross and come after me can be my disciple. And indeed, which of you here, intending to build a tower, would not first sit down and work out the cost to see if he had enough to complete it? Otherwise, if he laid the foundation and then found himself unable to finish the work, anyone who saw it would start making fun of him and saying, “Here is someone who started to build and was unable to finish.”

‘Or again, what king marching to war against another king would not first sit down and consider whether with ten thousand men he could stand up to the other who was advancing against him with twenty thousand? If not, then while the other king was still a long way off, he would send envoys to sue for peace. So in the same way, none of you can be my disciple without giving up all that he owns.’
