DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Kingdom of Heaven”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims “greatness” to those who belong to the “Kingdom of Heaven”.  Jesus assures that these faithful followers of His Good News of Salvation will receive the divine gift of Eternal Life.  Do we value and live the Good News daily, regardless of the challenges we face?

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 11:11-15

Jesus spoke to the crowd”: ‘In truth I tell you, of all the children born to women, there has never been anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.

‘Since John the Baptist came, up to this present time, the kingdom of Heaven has been subjected to violence and the violent are taking it by storm. Because it was towards John that all the prophecies of the prophets and of the Law were leading; and he, if you will believe me, is the Elijah who was to return.           ‘Anyone who has ears should listen!’
