DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Fidelity – Trust: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that to be His disciple, one must be willing to “carry his cross” and trust in Him wholeheartedly in witnessing to the Gospel.  He will always give us the strength, wisdom and fidelity we need.  Ponder on, “Are there attachments that prevent us from following Jesus more faithfully?

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 14:27-33

Jesus spoke to the crowd, ‘No one who does not carry his cross and come after me can be my disciple. Renouncing possessions

‘And indeed, which of you here, intending to build a tower, would not first sit down and work out the cost to see if he had enough to complete it? Otherwise, if he laid the foundation and then found himself unable to finish the work, anyone who saw it would start making fun of him and saying, “Here is someone who started to build and was unable to finish.”

‘Or again, what king marching to war against another king would not first sit down and consider whether with ten thousand men he could stand up to the other who was advancing against him with twenty thousand? If not, then while the other king was still a long way off, he would send envoys to sue for peace. So in the same way, none of you can be my disciple without giving up all that he owns.’
