Dear Friend in the Lord,
Single-minded Commitment: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to His disciples that God our Father expects His disciples and all of us to have a single-minded commitment in the living of our faith. Nothing in this world: people, possessions, popularity, power should draw us away from the Good News of Salvation.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already! There is a baptism I must still receive, and how great is my distress till it is over!
‘Do you suppose that I am here to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on, a household of five will be divided: three against two and two against three; the father divided against the son, son against father, mother against daughter, daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law, daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.’
