Dear Friend in the Lord,

Rejection of the Messiah”: In today’s world, the “Messiah” continues to be rejected, persecuted and disfigured.  Likewise, ponder on, “The great sadness of the “darkness” of secular power, atheistic ideologies and morality that promote “self-centred glory and gratification?”  All these “destroy lives, families and obstruct the faith that offers Eternal Life.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 17:10-13

As they came down from the mountain the disciples put this question to Jesus, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’

He replied, ‘Elijah is indeed coming, and he will set everything right again; however, I tell you that Elijah has come already and they did not recognise him but treated him as they pleased; and the Son of man will suffer similarly at their hands.’ Then the disciples understood that he was speaking of John the Baptist.
