Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus the Messiah: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to the Jews that “John is a lamp and shining for a while”; indeed He is the awaited Messiah who offers the Good News of Salvation.  Ponder on, “Many people are looking at other ‘gods’ in their needs and desperation e.g. superstitions, but fail to accept Jesus fully as the True God of Eternal Salvation.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 5:33-36

Jesus said to the Jews: ‘You sent messengers to John, and he gave his testimony to the truth: not that I depend on human testimony; no, it is for your salvation that I mention it.

‘John was a lamp lit and shining and for a time you were content to enjoy the light that he gave. But my testimony is greater than John’s: the deeds my Father has given me to perform, these same deeds of mine testify that the Father has sent me.’
