Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Truth – Rejection: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded His disciples that the towns of Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum who rejected God’s offer of the Good News of Salvation, paid the consequences for their actions.  Ponder on, “How receptive and grateful are we to God for sending His Son, Jesus to Save us from the eternal damnation of our sinfulness?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:13-16

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Alas for you, Chorazin! Alas for you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. And still, it will not go as hard with Tyre and Sidon at the Judgement as with you. And as for you, Capernaum, did you want to be  exalted high as heaven? You shall be thrown down to hell.

‘Anyone who listens to you listens to me; anyone who rejects you rejects me, and those who reject me reject the one who sent me.’
