DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – Unconditional: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims a very radical Gospel to His disciples.  Jesus requires that His Father’s Will of Salvation must be served and lived with an unconditional commitment; nothing and nobody on earth should have a higher priority of importance.  Ponder on, “Is God the centre of our lives and is our love for Him deep and personal?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 12:49-53

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already! There is a baptism I must still receive, and how great is my distress till it is over!’

‘Do you suppose that I am here to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on a household of five will be divided: three against two and two against three; the father divided against the son, son against father, mother against daughter, daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law, daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.’
