Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – Israelites: In today’s Gospel, Jesus sent His twelve disciples to first proclaim the Good News of Salvation to the Israelites, instead of the Gentiles. Are we grateful to God for the gift of faith that offers Eternal Life, when millions of others have still not received the faith? Do we take our faith for granted? The greatest tragedy in life is to lose our faith.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Matthew 10:1, 5-7
Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits with power to cast them out and to cure all kinds of diseases and sickness.
These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them as follows: ‘Do not turn your steps to pagan territory, and do not enter any Samaritan town; go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. And as you go, proclaim that the kingdom of Heaven is close at hand.’
