DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith Response”:  In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples; to relate with others in the spirit of “God’s Generosity”.  Such radical relationships are possible, when we accept with gratitude, God’s infinite Mercy and Love towards us.  Ponder on, “Are we inspired to relate to Jesus’ Compassionate Love, for those who have hurt us?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 5:38-42

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘You have heard how it was said: Eye for eye and tooth for tooth. But I say this to you: offer no resistance to the wicked. On the contrary, if anyone hits you on the right cheek, offer him the other as well; if someone wishes to go to law with you to get your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone requires you to go one mile, go two miles with him.

‘Give to anyone who asks you, and if anyone wants to borrow, do not turn away.’
