Dear Friend in the Lord,

Good News of Jesus: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims the “new wine and new skins” of the Good News that offers Eternal Salvation”.  Ponder on, “If we strongly believe in Jesus’ Good News, then our lives should be one of: joy and hope, as Jesus never fails to love and provide for those who deeply believe in Him”.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 5:33-38

The Pharisees and the scribes said to Jesus, ‘John’s disciples are always fasting and saying prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees, too, but yours go on eating and drinking.’ Jesus replied, ‘Surely you cannot make the bridegroom’s attendants fast while the bridegroom is still with them? But the time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them; that will be the time when they will fast.’

He also told them a parable, ‘No one tears a piece from a new cloak to put it on an old cloak; if he does, not only will he have torn the new one, but the piece taken from the new will not match the old.

‘And nobody puts new wine in old skins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins and then run out, and the skins will be lost. No; new wine must be put into fresh skins.’
