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.
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.’
