DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – “Jesus’ Ways”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds His disciples that to witness to the Good News, their love for God must be unconditional.  Ponder on, “As God always shows us His Mercy and Forgiving Love, are we also willing to forgive ourselves and others at all times?  Pray for the grace to have such humility and wisdom.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 5:38-42

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘You have learnt how it was said: Eye for eye and tooth for tooth. But I say this to you: offer the wicked man no resistance. On the contrary, if anyone hits you on the right cheek, offer him the other as well; if a man takes you to law and would have your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone orders you to go one mile, go two miles with him.

‘Give to anyone who asks, and if anyone wants to borrow, do not turn away.’
