Dear Friend in the Lord,

Authentic Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds His disciples to focus on proclaiming and witnessing the Good News of Salvation; with authenticity.  There is no need to “swear” by God’s Name or by any other names.  Ponder on, “We are to live authentic lives that Jesus proclaimed.  We must honour our promises with integrity; as we witness God’s Truth through our lives.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 5:27-32

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Again, you have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You must not break your oath, but must fulfil your oaths to the Lord. But I say this to you, do not swear at all, either by heaven, since that is God’s throne; or by earth, since that is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, since that is the city of the great King. Do not swear by your own head either, since you cannot turn a single hair white or black.

‘All you need say is “Yes” if you mean yes, “No” if you mean no; anything more than this comes from the Evil One.’
