DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Compassion: In today’s Gospel, Jesus who willingly Suffered and Died for us, was pierced at His Side, where His Blood and Water flowed out.  This scene captures for us God’s infinite Merciful and Compassionate Love for us.  Beg God for the grace also to be more like Jesus when people hurt and harm us.

Pray the Novena Prayers to Sacred Heart leading to the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 19:31-37

It was Preparation Day, and to prevent the bodies remaining on the cross during the sabbath — since that sabbath was a day of special solemnity — the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away. Consequently the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with him and then of the other.

          When they came to Jesus, they found he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water. This is the evidence of one who saw it — trustworthy evidence, and he knows he speaks the truth — and he gives it so that you may believe as well.
