Dear Friend in the Lord,

Double Standards” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus points out to the Pharisees of how they would bend the Sabbath Laws to suit their convenience and needs, but impose them on others rigidly, harshly and unjustly.  Ponder on, “Are we also guilty of having such attitudes in the practice of our faith?”

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 14:1-6

On a Sabbath day Jesus had gone to share a meal in the house of one of the leading Pharisees; and they watched him closely. Now there in front of him was a man with dropsy, and Jesus addressed the lawyers and Pharisees with the words, ‘Is it against the law to cure someone on the Sabbath, or not?’ But they remained silent, so he took the man and cured him and sent him away.

Then he said to them, ‘Which of you here, if his son falls into a well, or his ox, will not pull him out on a Sabbath day without any hesitation?’ And to this they could find no answer.
