Dear Friend in the Lord,

Persecution – Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautions His disciples, “If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you too.”  Ponder on, “Do I unite my pain and persecution for the faith, to Jesus’ Sufferings?”  If we “offer” these “sufferings” for the good of someone’s faith, they become “redemptive” sufferings.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 15:18-21

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If the world hates you, you must realize that it hated me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you do not belong to the world, because my choice of you has drawn you out of the world, that is why the world hates you.

‘Remember the words I said to you: A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too; if they kept my word, they will keep yours as well. But it will be on my account that they will do all this to you, because they do not know the one who sent me.’
