Dear Friend in the Lord,

Challenges of Living the Faith”:  In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded His Apostles to live the faith with “wisdom.”  There are many enemies of the faith who are finding ways to “persecute and destroy” God’s Truth of Salvation.  Ponder on, “Am I willing to make sacrifices and face painful challenges for my faith and out of love for God?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 10:16-20, 22

Jesus instructed the Twelve as follows: ‘Remember, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves; so be cunning as serpents and yet as harmless as doves.

‘Beware of men: they will hand you over to sanhedrins and scourge you in their synagogues. You will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the pagans. But when they hand you over, do not worry about how to speak or what to say; what you are to say will be given to you when the time comes, because it is not you who will be speaking; the Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you.

‘You will be hated by all men on account of my name; but the man who stands firm to the end will be saved.’
