Dear Friend in the Lord,
Good and Evil Spirits: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that Good Spirits lead us to God, while Bad Spirits lead us away from God. Ponder on, “Do we have a discerning heart that is able to distinguish between the Good and the Bad Spirits? Pray for the divine Wisdom to love God more sincerely and wholeheartedly.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Leaving the crowds, Jesus went to the house; and his disciples came to him and said, ‘Explain the parable about the darnel in the field to us.’ He said in reply, ‘The sower of the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world; the good seed is the subjects of the kingdom; the darnel, the subjects of the evil one; the enemy who sowed it, the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; the reapers are the angels.
‘Well then, just as the darnel is gathered up and burnt in the fire, so it will be at the end of time. The Son of Man will send his angels and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that provoke offences and all who do evil, and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth. Then the virtuous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Listen, anyone who has ears!’
