Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Our Needs” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures His disciples that whatever they “ask” and “search” for in their faith, God will never fail to answer in His Personal, Merciful and Compassionate Ways. Ponder on, “In His Wisdom, God will always give us what is the ‘best’ for us . . . Trust and Love God more wholeheartedly.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the kingdom of Heaven.
‘You have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You shall not kill; and if anyone does kill he must answer for it before the court. But I say this to you, anyone who is angry with a brother will answer for it before the court; anyone who calls a brother “Fool” will answer for it before the Sanhedrin; and anyone who calls him “Traitor” will answer for it in hell fire. So then, if you are bringing your offering to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar, go and be reconciled with your brother first, and then come back and present your offering.’
