Compassion: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims clearly to His disciples that compassion, forgiveness and generosity are virtues that will bring immense blessings from God.  Pray for the gift to live such Christ-like lives instead of seeking cold justice and revenge.  Do you have such virtues of Christ?

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 6:36-38

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate. Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.

‘Give, and there will be gifts for you: a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap; because the standard you use will be the standard used for you.’
