DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Church – Unity: In today’s Gospel, Jesus prays to His Father for the unity amongst all His disciples and believers.  Unity is much needed in our local parish, archdiocese and universal Church, and between Catholics and Protestant Christians.  Pray for greater unity and peace, that all believers may serve God’s Greater Glory.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 17:20-24

Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said, ‘Holy Father, I pray not only for these but also for those also who through their words will believe in me. May they all be one. , Father, may they be one in us, as you are in me and I am in you, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me. I have given them the glory you gave to me, that they may be one as we are one. With me in them and you in me, may they be so so completely one that the world will realise that it was you who sent me and that I have loved them as mush as you loved me.

‘Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, so that they may always see the glory you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.’
