Dear Friend in the Lord,

Depth of our Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus challenged the Pharisees to live a more authentic and not a hypocritical faith.  Ponder on, “When we live and practice our faith like going for Mass, doing good deeds of compassion, making sacrifices etc. . . Do we do so out of our sincere and deep love for God, or do we do them superficially and routinely?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 11:37-41

Jesus had just finished speaking when a Pharisee invited him to dine at his house. He went in and sat down at table. The Pharisee saw this and was surprised that he had not first washed before the meal.

But the Lord said to him, ‘You Pharisees! You clean the outside of cup and plate, while inside yourselves you are filled with extortion and wickedness. Fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside too? Instead, give alms from what you have and, look, everything will be clean for you.’
