DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Discipleship of Jesus: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples and us, that we are all called to follow Him with a single-minded passion, like a “wheat grain that dies, and yields a rich harvest.”  Ponder on, “How willing are we to make the daily sacrifices and endure the challenges in our witness and service as Jesus’ disciples?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 12:24-26

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I tell you most solemnly, unless a wheat grain falls on the ground and dies, it remains only a single grain; but if it dies it yields a rich harvest.

‘Anyone who loves his life loses it; anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If a man serves me, he must follow me, wherever I am,  my servant will be there too. If anyone serves me, my Father will honour him.
