Dear Friend in the Lord,

Crucifying Jesus”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus’ life was threatened by the Pharisees’ plot to kill Him.  Ponder on, “In today’s secular society, there are many people who are anti-Christ; they plot to destroy Jesus’ Good News of Salvation.  However, like Jesus, we need to be vigilant in our faith, yet compassionate in our love towards everyone.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 12:14-21

The Pharisees went out and began to plot against Jesus, discussing how to destroy him. Jesus knew this and withdrew from the district. Many followed him and he cured them all but warned them not to make him known. This was to fulfil the prophecy of Isaiah:

Here is my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved, the favourite of my soul, I will endow him with my Spirit, and he will proclaim the true faith to the nations; he will not brawl or shout, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets. He will not break the crushed reed, nor put out the smouldering wick, till he has led the truth to victory: in his name the nations will put their hope.
