Dear Friend in the Lord,
Choosing Jesus: In today’s Gospel, Jesus says, “If the world hates you, you must realise that it hated Me before it hates you.” Do we dare to stand up for our faith with courage, and condemn injustices? Do we highlight the evils of abortion and uphold the moral practices of our faith, in the Gospel of Jesus?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If the world hates you, you must realise that it hated me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you do not belong to the world, because my choice of you has drawn you out of the world, that is why the world hates you.
‘Remember the words I said to you: A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too; if they kept my word, they will keep yours as well. But it will be on my account that they will do all this to you, because they do not know the one who sent me.’
