DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Presence: When our hearts are open to the Gospel Truth of Christ, we will be able to sense the Presence of God.  We will know that we are not alone in our needs and that His Love for us is unfailing and His Mercy is unconditional.  When we reject God’s Truth and Love, life will be empty and filled with anxieties.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 17:10-13

As they came down from the mountain the disciples put this question to Jesus, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’

He replied, ‘Elijah is indeed coming, and he will set everything right again; however, I tell you that Elijah has come already and they did not recognise him but treated him as they pleased; and the Son of man will suffer similarly at their hands.’ Then the disciples understood that he was speaking of John the Baptist.
