Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – Sincerity: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that it is essential that we remain faithful and sincere in our love for Jesus, who is our Lord and Saviour. We cannot live a hypocritical faith; this does not dispose us to gain Eternal Life after we die. We may deceive others in the way we live our life and faith, but not God, who Knows everything.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
John 10:1-5, 9-10
Jesus said: ‘I tell you most solemnly, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the gate, but gets in some other way, is a thief and a brigand. The one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gatekeeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out his flock, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice. They will never follow a stranger, but run away from him: they do not recognise the voice of strangers.’
‘I am the gate. Anyone who enters through me will be safe: he will go freely in and out and be sure of finding pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full.’
