Dear Friend in the Lord,

Trials of the Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautioned His disciples about the great trials that they will face, on account of their proclamation of their faith in Him.  Ponder on, “What are the different challenges you face in the daily living of your faith?  Are they from people or from within yourself because of your attachments, addictions and sins?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 21:12-19

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Men will seize you and persecute you; they will  hand you over to the synagogues and to imprisonment, and bring you before kings and governors because of my name – and that will be your opportunity to bear witness.  Keep this carefully in mind: you are not to prepare your defence, because I myself shall give you an eloquence and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to resist or contradict.

‘You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relations and friends; and some of you will be put to death. You will be hated by all men on account of my name, but not a hair of your head will be lost. Your endurance will win you your lives.’
