DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Mercy – Wrongdoing: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us to treat each other with mercy, respect and forgiving love when someone does something wrong.  Let us remember that God our Father who is infinite Mercy and Love is always in our midst.  To love Him is to love one another in the way that Jesus has shown us.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 18:15-20

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If your brother does something wrong, go and have it out with him alone, between your two selves. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother. If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you: whatever the misdemeanour, the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain the charge. But if he refuses to listen to these, report it to the community; and if he refuses to listen to the community, treat him like a gentile or a tax collector.

‘In truth I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

‘In truth I tell you once again, if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three meet in my name, I am there among them.’
