Dear Friend in the Lord,
Jesus’ Compassion: In today’s Gospel, Jesus’ Compassion moved Him to reach out to those who were “harassed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd.” As such, Jesus cured the sick, healed their traumas, and most of all offered them the hope of Eternal Happiness. Are we open to Jesus’ Compassionate Love for us?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus made a tour through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and all kinds of illness.
And when he saw the crowds he felt sorry for them because they were harassed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers to his harvest.’
