Dear Friend in the Lord,

Vigilance – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautions His disciples to live the Gospel with vigilance.  Ponder on, “The vigilance of our faith should be founded on God’s Love for us and our love for Him, and not out of the fear of God’s punishments.  True vigilance will bring God’s Peace, Joy and Fulfillment in our hearts and homes.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 13:33-37

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Be on your guard, stay awake, because you never know when the time will come. It is like a man travelling abroad: he has gone from his home, and left his servants in charge, each with his own work to do; and he has told the doorkeeper to stay awake.

‘So stay awake, because you do not know when the master of the house is coming, evening, midnight, cockcrow or dawn; if he comes unexpectedly, he must not find you asleep. And what I am saying to you I say to all: Stay awake!’
