DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – Sincerity: In today’s Gospel, Jesus urges His disciples to proclaim and witness the Gospel with sincerity and courage, regardless of the challenges we face. Ponder on, “Recall the times when the Holy Spirit clearly enlightened, guided and empowered you to be Christ-like. Speak to the Spirit who is in your heart.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I tell you, if anyone openly declares himself for me in the presence of men, the Son of Man will declare himself for him in the presence of God’s angels. But the man who disowns me in the presence of men will be disowned in the presence of God’s angels.
‘Everyone who says a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
‘When they take you before synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how to defend yourselves or what to say, because when the time comes, the Holy Spirit will teach you what you must say.’
