Dear Friend in the Lord,
Challenges of Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus exhorts His disciples that to follow the path of the Gospel that leads to Eternal Life is filled with challenges. Thus, to live our faith with vigilance and fidelity, we need God’s graces and strength. Ponder on, “To live our faith, depending on our human efforts alone would be futile.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Matthew 7:6, 12-14
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not give dogs what is holy; and do not throw your pearls in front of pigs, or they may trample them and then turn on you and tear you to pieces.
‘So always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the Law and the Prophets.
‘Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it; but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.’
