Dear Friend in the Lord,

He is the Chosen One” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, John the Baptist proclaimed that Jesus is the “Messiah”; the “Chosen one of God.” Ponder on, “John was a great prophet, and lived God’s Mission with great fidelity.  What “mission” has God “chosen” for you personally?  To help your family, friends, colleagues know and love Jesus more?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.


The next day, seeing Jesus coming towards him, John said, ‘Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. It was of him that I said, “Behind me comes one who has passed ahead of me because he existed before me.” I did not know him myself, and yet my purpose in coming to baptise with water was so that he might be revealed to Israel.’

And John declared, ‘I saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven and rest on him. I did not know him myself, but he who sent me to baptise with water had said to me, “The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and rest is the one who is to baptise with the Holy Spirit.” I have seen and I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.’
