DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Presence: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to John’s disciples that He is the awaited Messiah.  And, we should daily “celebrate the joy of His Presence.”  Do we take God’s blessings of His Mercy, Love and gift of Salvation for granted?  How do we love Jesus and show our gratitude to Him daily?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 9:14-15

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

Jesus replied, ‘Surely the bridegroom’s attendants would never think of mourning as long as the bridegroom is still with them? But the time will come for the bridegroom to be taken away from them, and then they will fast.’
