Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – Vigilance: We are tempted to drift in our faith and push God to the background of our lives when things are going well.  Some of us seem to need a “crisis” to wake us up to the reality that our lives are dependent on God’s Goodness and Mercy.  Ponder on, “Am I living my faith vigilantly?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 21:24-28

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Great misery will descend on the land and retribution on this people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to every gentile country; and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the gentiles until their time is complete.

‘There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; on earth nations in agony, bewildered by the turmoil of the ocean and its waves; men fainting away with terror and fear at what menaces the world, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand erect, hold your heads high, because your liberation is near at hand.’
