DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Live the Gospel: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded His apostles, to live the virtues of the Gospel at all times.  Their true self-worth as “salt” of the earth is to serve and sow His Peace, from the Good News to everyone.  Ponder on, “When we live the Gospel values, we are richly ‘rewarded’ by God’s Peace, Love and Joy.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 9:41-42, 49-50

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If anyone gives you a cup of water to drink just because you belong to Christ, then I tell you solemnly, he will most certainly not lose his reward. But anyone who is the downfall of one of these little ones who have faith, would be better thrown into the sea with a great millstone hung round his neck.

‘For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is a good thing, but if salt has become insipid, how can you season it again? Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with one another.’
