Dear Friend in the Lord,

World and Heaven – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples, “Take up your cross every day and follow Me.  What benefit is it to anyone to win the whole world and lose his soul and Eternal Happiness?”  Ponder on, “Jesus is inviting us not to give up ‘Eternal Life’ in exchange for the empty pleasures and glories of this world.”

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 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.’
