Dear Friend in the Lord,

Fidelity to God: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds His disciples that in the pains and trials of the faith, they would flee in fear for their lives.  However, they should be courageous. The world will come to know and accept His Truth and Triumph over sin and death.  Let us pray that we live our faith with greater fidelity in the challenges we face.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 16:29-33

His disciples said to Jesus, ‘Now you are speaking plainly and not using veiled language. Now we see that you know everything and need not wait for questions to be put into words; because of this we believe that you came from God.’

Jesus answered them: ‘Do you believe at last? Listen; the time will come – indeed it has come already – when you are going to be scattered, each going his own way and leaving me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you all this so that you may find peace in me. In the world you will have hardship, but be courageous: I have conquered the world.’
