DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus the True Light” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, “I am The Light that has come into the world.  Anyone who believes in Me need not stay in the dark anymore.”  Ponder on, “Many prefer the glories, gratifications and gold of the secular world.  Have such ‘temptations’ of ‘darkness,’ led us to our fantasies and “false living”?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 12:44-50

Jesus declared publicly: Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in the one who sent me, and whoever sees me, sees the one who sent me. I, the light, have come into the world, so that whoever believes in me need not stay in the dark any more.

‘If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithfully, it is not I who shall condemn him, since I have come not to condemn the world, but to save the world: he who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already: the word itself that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day.

‘For what I have spoken does not come from myself; no, what I was to say, what I had to speak, was commanded by the Father who sent me, and I know that his commands mean eternal life. And therefore what the Father has told me is what I speak.’
