DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – Daily Living: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, “Everybody who believes in Me has Eternal Life.” Ponder on, “Do I value the Divine Wisdom of Jesus’ Word in the Bible and in the Church’s Teachings to guide me in my daily living? Am I obedient to God’s Truth and also pray for the wisdom to live it with fidelity and humility?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to the crowd: ‘No one can come to me unless he is drawn by the Father who sent me, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets: They will all be taught by God; and to hear the teaching of the Father, and learn from it, is to come to me. Not that anybody has seen the Father, except the one who comes from God: he has seen the Father.
‘I tell you solemnly, everybody who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the desert and they are dead; but this is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that a man may eat it and not die.
‘I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.’
