Dear Friend in the Lord,
Hardship – Hope: In today’s Gospel Jesus proclaims, “In the world, you will have hardship, but be courageous: I have conquered the world.” Jesus has conquered the world by proclaiming a Gospel that offers Eternal Life of happiness and glory in heaven. This gives us strength and hope to remain faithful to Him in our hardship.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
His disciples said to Jesus, ‘Now you are speaking plainly and not using veiled language. Now we see that you know everything and need not wait for questions to be put into words; because of this we believe that you came from God.’
Jesus answered them: ‘Do you believe at last? Listen; the time will come – indeed it has come already – when you are going to be scattered, each going his own way and leaving me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you all this so that you may find peace in me. In the world you will have hardship, but be courageous: I have conquered the world.’
