DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Persecutions – Crosses of Jesus”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples that they are to expect persecutions.  However, He will send the Holy Spirit to empower them to persevere in their faith.  Ponder on, “The evils and enemies of Jesus’ Good News of Salvation, “attack us” daily.  But, we can still bear witness to Jesus as the Messiah, with creative fidelity.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 15:26-16:4a

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘When the Paraclete comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who issues from the Father, he will be my witness. And you too will be witnesses, because you have been with me from the beginning.

‘I have told you all this so that you may not fall away. They will expel you from the synagogues, and indeed the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is doing a holy service to God. They will do these things because they have never known either the Father or me. But I have told you all this, so that when the time for it comes you may remember that I told you.’
