Dear Friend in the Lord,

Judgment – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed that to gain Eternal Salvation, we are to live the Father’s Will of showing love and compassion to the sick, dying, suffering and sinners. Ponder on, “If we were to die today, would our report be that we have lived the Father’s Will fully or we have neglected the needy?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 25:31, 32b, 34-40

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘When the Son of man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory. He will separate men one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats.

Then the King will say to those on his right hand, “Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take as your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me.”

Then the virtuous will say to him in reply, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome, naked and clothe you; sick or in prison and go to see you?” And the King will answer, “I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.”
