Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Price of a Believer” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to His disciples, “You will be persecuted and imprisoned but, that will be your opportunity to bear witness. . . and I Myself, will give you an eloquence and wisdom” that cannot be matched.” Ponder on, “With God’s Light and Love, in spite of the persecutions we may face, God will triumph through the Holy Spirit within us.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘You will be seized and persecuted; you will be handed over to the synagogues and to imprisonment, and brought before kings and governors for the sake of my name 13-and that will be your opportunity to bear witness. Make up your minds not to prepare your defense, because I myself shall give you an eloquence and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to resist or contradict.
‘You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relations and friends; and some of you will be put to death. You will be hated universally on account of my name, but not a hair of your head will be lost. Your perseverance will win you your lives.’
