Dear Friend in the Lord,

Messiah’s Presence” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to John the Baptist’s disciples that when the “Messiah is Present” with us, we are to focus our “joys” on Him, and not be distracted by any other rituals and deeds.  Ponder on, “Is our faith in Jesus, our Messiah, centered on how to love and serve Him more sincerely and deeply?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 9:14-15

Then John’s disciples came to him and said, ‘Why is it that we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not?’

Jesus replied, ‘Surely the bridegroom’s attendants cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is still with them? But the time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.’
