Dear Friend in the Lord,
Authenticity – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus challenges the people to embrace the Truth of Salvation that He is offering, and urges them not to be deceived by the evils in the world and in their lives. Ponder on, “Do I procrastinate and find excuses for not wanting to live my faith as God Wills of me?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
When Jesus had cast out a devil, some of the people said, ‘It is through Beelzebul, the prince of devils, that he casts out devils.’ Others asked Jesus, as a test, for a sign from heaven; but, knowing what they were thinking, he said to them,
‘Every kingdom divided against itself is heading for ruin, and a household divided against itself collapses. So, too, with Satan: if he is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? – since you assert that it is through Beelzebul that I cast out devils. Now if it is through Beelzebul that I drive devils out, through whom do your own experts cast them out? Let them be your judges, then. But if it is through the finger of God that I cast out devils, then know that the kingdom of God has overtaken you.’
