Dear Friend in the Lord,
Vigilance in Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautioned His disciples to live their faith with constant fidelity. Otherwise, Jesus said, “your hearts will be coarsened by debauchery, drunkenness and the cares of life.” Ponder on, “Have we taken our faith in God lightly and turned away from Him, especially during the grave temptations of our life?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Watch yourselves, or your hearts will be coarsened by debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of life, and that day will sprung on you suddenly, like a trap. For it will come down on every living man on the face of the earth.
‘Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man.’
