Dear Friend in the Lord,

Divine Revelation” – Humility: In today’s Gospel, Jesus prays in thanksgiving to His Father for “revealing His Truth to little ‘children’, and hiding them from the ‘learned and clever’.”  Ponder on, “When we are ‘humble’ like children, our minds and hearts are open to God’s Truth.  But, to be proud is sadly, to think we know ‘everything’ and that we don’t even need God.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:21-24

Filled with joy by the Holy Spirit, Jesus said, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it has pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’

Then turning to his disciples he spoke to them by themselves, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.’
