Dear Friend in the Lord,

Enemies of Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus prophesised, “The Son of Man will suffer.” Ponder on, “The ‘enemies’ of Jesus condemn Him to Death.  Today, they continue to try to distort and destroy the Truth of Christ’s Gospel of Salvation and the Church that He instituted.  How do I defend the Truth?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 17:10-13

As they came down from the mountain the disciples put this question to Jesus, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah has to come first?’

‘True’ he replied, ‘Elijah is to come to see that everything is once more as it should be; however, I tell you that Elijah has come already and they did not recognise him but treated him as they pleased; and the Son of Man will suffer similarly at their hands.’

Then the disciples understood that he had been speaking of John the Baptist.
