Dear Friend in the Lord,
Discerning Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus explains to the Pharisees that the “Kingdom of God” is already present among us; so, we are to live a more discerning life. We are to live daily with greater consciousness of loving God and others, as God wills of us. Ponder on, “Do we live a superficial and routine faith?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was to come, Jesus gave them this answer, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God does not admit of observation and there will be no one to say, “Look, it is here! Look, it is there!” For look, the kingdom of God is among you.’
He said to the disciples, ‘A time will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of man and will not see it. They will say to you, “Look, it is there!” or, “Look, it is here!” Make no move; do not set off in pursuit; for as the lightning flashing from one part of heaven lights up the other, so will be the Son of man when his Day comes. But first he is destined to suffer grievously and be rejected by this generation.’
