Dear Friend in the Lord,
God Centred Life: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds His apostles, that they are to put God at the centre of everything, especially when they are proclaiming the Gospel of Salvation. The Holy Spirit will never fail to enlighten and empower them in their mission. Like the apostles, we are to trust God totally always.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Again, you have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You must not break your oath, but must fulfil your oaths to the Lord. But I say this to you, do not swear at all, either by heaven, since that is God’s throne; or by earth, since that is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, since that is the city of the great King. Do not swear by your own head either, since you cannot turn a single hair white or black.
‘All you need say is “Yes” if you mean yes, “No” if you mean no; anything more than this comes from the Evil One.’
