DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Love and Mercy: In today’s Gospel the Good Shepherd leaves the ninety-nine sheep to look for one lost sheep.  This Truth is about Jesus’ unconditional Love and Mercy for each one who has strayed and sinned.  When our hearts are repentant we return “Home” to His Loving embrace.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 18:12-14

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hillside and go in search of the stray?

‘In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all. Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.’
