Dear Friend in the Lord,

Essence of Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus challenged the Pharisees to see the truth that in observing the Sabbath Laws our lives must also witness God’s: mercy, compassion, love and service for the good of others; unlike their lives of self-righteousness and injustice.  Ponder on, “Does the living of our Christian faith, make us more humble, merciful and morally upright?

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.
