DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – “Growth”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that our faith, hope and love for God is a gift that grows because of God’s ongoing nurturance, care and love. It is God who sustains us with graces to deepen our love and relationship with Him. Thank Him daily, for without God we can do nothing.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to the crowd: ‘Would you bring in a lamp and put it under a tub or under the bed? Surely to be put on the lamp-stand? For there is nothing hidden, but it must be disclosed, nothing kept secret except to be brought to light. Anyone who has ears for listening should listen!’
He also said to them, ‘Take notice of what you are hearing. The standard you use will be used for you — and you will receive more besides; anyone who has, will be given more; anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he has.’
